Suggested Course Paths
  1. MATHEMATICS
    Math 6/5 Math 7/6 Pre-Algebra
    Students will take a placement to determine which math course they should begin with at CCA. Generally, Math 6/5 is a math class for the "average" 6th grade student. Math 7/6 for the "average" 7th grade student and Pre-Algebra for the "average" 8th grade student.
  2. HS MATHEMATICS
    Algebra 1 Geometry Algebra 2 Pre-Calculus
    **special note: Parents can choose to alternate Algebra 2 and Geometry. Our first recommendation if the schedule allows is to take Geometry first to allow the student to gain another year of academic maturity to attack the more difficult concepts in Algebra 2.
  3. MS/HS LITERATURE
    MS Literature* HS Literature 1 ** World Literature (10th and up) American Literature (11th and up)
    *MS Literature is on a 2-yr rotation and can be taken with the MS Writing/Grammar class. **HS Literature 1 covers the basics of literary analysis to build a foundation for future literature courses. Either HS Lit 1 or a comparative course/knowledge is required for the next two courses.
  4. MS/HS WRITING/GRAMMAR
    MS Writing/Grammar* HS Writing/Grammar 1 (9th and up) HS Writing/Grammar 2 College Prepatory Writing
    *MS Writing/Grammar is on a 2-yr rotation and can be taken with the MS Literature class. NOTE: BOTH HS Writing/Grammar 2 and College Prep Writing require successful completion of the previous course OR a submitted writing sample to teacher for final placement approval.
  5. MS/HS SOCIAL SCIENCES
    MS American History* MS Civics/Geography* HS Geography HS World History OR World History 1 HS American History Govt/Econonics OR Civics/Pers Finance**
