Programs - O'Shaughnessy Program
The O’Shaughnessy Program serves students in grades 9-12 who need additional academic support to succeed in a college preparatory environment. Admission to the program is based on standardized test scores, junior high academic performance, and/or psycho-educational testing. Students in the O’Shaughnessy Program are enrolled in two or more track 1 courses.
O'Shaughnessy Program Overview
Track 1 courses offer students a college preparatory curriculum in classes with smaller teacher to student ratios (approximately 1 teacher for 15 students). O’Shaughnessy students also attend a daily supervised study that provides assistance with organization and study skills. O’Shaughnessy resource teachers are in regular contact with students’ content area teachers and facilitate parent conferences at the end of every quarter.
Incoming freshmen enrolled in the O’Shaughnessy program must attend summer school prior to their freshman year. There is an additional annual fee for the O’Shaughnessy program.
