Notes

  1. Foundation Classes (English & Algebra) are year-long courses for freshmen. Each class lasts 45 minutes instead of Emerson's traditional 90 minutes.  
  2. Information Literacy is required for all incoming freshmen while offered to others as optional support.
  3. Enrollment in given classes for Honors requires instructor/Head of School approval.
  4. While students may take AP exams, we do not offer AP courses.
