Curriculum

The accelerated, enriched curriculum requires four years of science and mathematics, and two years of computer science. Students also participate in activities, projects and field trips related to the curriculum. Additionally, juniors and seniors have the opportunity to take elective courses at Andrews University for college credit.

Students may participate in a semester scientific internship during their junior or senior year. During this time, students thoroughly investigate a career field and spend 20 to 30 hours with a mentor in that field. Former students have had the opportunity to work with physicians, surgeons, computer scientists, biologists, and researchers in a variety of sciences.

Instruction is delivered by university professors and staff. Eighty-five percent of the instructors hold PhDs in their academic fields.

Faculty are always willing to help students with questions, having their offices just a few doors down from the classrooms. In addition, two evening study sessions are held each week for any students who want extra help.

All students are required to complete the advanced honors courses. All science courses are laboratory based. Center students meet the Michigan Merit Curriculum Online Experience requirement. Some students may be accelerated in the mathematics sequence and have the option of taking university mathematics courses after completing AP Calculus.
