Academic Concentrations

Foxcroft’s curriculum provides a breadth of course options in core liberal arts subjects — English, History, World Languages, Mathematics, Science, and the Arts — that students may take to earn the 21 credits required for graduation. The Academic Concentrations program allows a student to focus her studies at our college prep school in one of several specific areas, 超过了毕业要求, 在传统的课堂体验之外学习.

Academic Concentrations are offered in:

Animal Science
Global Studies
The Arts
Students who successfully complete the requirements earn special transcript designations.

Each student at our school may explore the various opportunities that comprise the overall Academic Concentrations program, 即使她没有追求文凭的指定. Those opportunities include individual classes (with the Assistant Head of School for Academics’ approval), internships, community service, and in some cases, 独立研究/最终报告.

How It Works

List of 3 items.

  • Eligibility & Requirements

    A student may apply to participate in the Academic Concentrations program in the spring of her first year at Foxcroft (usually freshman year), and eligibility is reviewed annually.

    To be eligible, a student must:
    • 有良好的动机和成就记录吗
    • 展示专注的能力

    Requirements to earn the Academic Concentration transcript designation vary from discipline to discipline but generally include the following:
    • 严格的课程作业,取得高水平的成绩
    • 每年都有学生参加实习
    • 每年致力于集中领域的社区服务
    • 独立学习和/或最终项目
    A student who enters Foxcroft after her freshman year may be eligible to transfer courses, internships, and community service from another school in order to meet the requirements; final approval for transfer credits rests with the department chair and the Assistant Head of School for Academics.
  • Application Process

    To apply, a student should
    • 与教务助理院长会面
