CORE Program

Our full-day CORE program is designed for students who are looking for smaller class sizes, personalized and more frequent teacher/student interactions, and an overall small school size. The program is committed towards re-engaging students who may have felt disengaged in large school settings.

CORE Program Highlights:

  • Direct instruction model (teacher driven)
  • Some online (GradPoint) options available for credit retrieval
  • Small class sizes (average between 8-15 students per class) – 160 total students in the program
  • Program is directed towards students who may be successful with direct instruction but may need a different and smaller environment and/or more teacher/student interaction/support
  • IEP students welcome
  • Trimester model: Four 90-minute classes daily, three times a year, six credit potential per year
  • 2018-2020 Graduates: 20 credit diploma (six less electives than at U-High/CV) – Entrance into a four-year college possible with waiver
  • 2021 Graduates: 24 credit diploma
  • Students may also:
    • Participate in U-High/CV activities (as long as they adhere to the athletic/activity code)
    • Take classes not offered at Mica Peak through U-High/CV (assuming that the student is in good-standing)
    • Enrollment in classes at  SVT and NewTech
