College Prep and Academy courses for credit, preview, or enrichment
For students entering 9th, 10th, 11th, or 12th grade
Cushing’s Excel Program offers a wide array of College Prep and Academy courses for credit, preview, or enrichment. Through a dynamic and supportive learning process, you will be challenged, engaged, and inspired—and will emerge better prepared for the rigors of a college-level curriculum.
Students enrolled the Excel Program are fully immersed in a single subject for their morning classes. In the application process, you will choose one course from the list below.
A note regarding classes for credit
- Upon successful completion of the course you enroll in, Cushing will award you a full year’s academic credit. Credit classes meet five hours each day for the entire five-week program. Of course, you must be in attendance for the entire session in order to receive credit.
- Due to extended class time during the day, students taking a class for credit are only required to participate in one afternoon course or activity.
- If you are seeking to transfer credit to another school, you should make prior arrangements with that school and notify the Summer Session Office of those arrangements.
- Many students who may not need credit at this point in their academic journey still take credit classes for review, preview (to prepare for honors or AP level classes), or personal interest and enrichment.
