At each grade level, students are required to take specific foundational courses and additional electives in English, history, mathematics, science, languages, and the arts. Every student is required to earn 21 block credits per year by taking at least three academic classes in A, B, and C Blocks per module each year. At CSW, four intensive blocks of study represents a year’s worth of work in one subject. In addition, each year, students are also required to take a certain number of D Block classes, when most athletic and other extra-curricular activities take place.
International students are not required to take a language other than English. All other graduation requirements, however, are expected of international students.
Each year, students work closely with their advisors and the academic office to create their academic schedules. The flexibility and variety of our Module System
ensures that all of our students graduate are fully prepared for the academic rigors of college—and beyond.
