Encore Education Corporation offices are closed this week for the July 4th holiday. Offices will reopen on July 7. This week's blog will show people the different pieces of Encore's virtual interest meeting. While this video was already sent one day this week, today the blog talks specifically about Encore's high school program.
TRADITIONAL PROGRAM - Students attend school 5 days a week, full time on campus.
High school traditional seat-based students will have the opportunity to enroll in up to eight classes on a block schedule. Classes will meet twice a week and every other Friday. The schedule will remain the same with rotating Friday schedules. This is being implemented to accommodate students on a Hybrid program within the traditional program and allow students to dually enroll in college classes at Victor Valley College.
There will be two blocks of schedules, like college. The first block will meet on Mondays, Wednesdays, and every other Friday. The second block will meet on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and every other Friday. These are designated with "A" days and "B" days. The attached PDF here is the 20/21 calendar (pending Covid). Encore Education Corporation has delayed the start of the school year by one month due to Covid-19.
ENCORE HIGH SCHOOL STANDARD GRADUATION REQUIREMENTS - Encore High School has adopted the UC, A-G admissions requirements for high school graduation from Encore.
A. History - Two Years required, including one year of world history, and one year of US history
B. English - Four Years required
C. Mathematics - Three Years required
D. Science - Two Years required, Three Years recommended
E. Foreign Language - Two Years required, Three Years recommended
F. Fine Arts - One Year required.
G. Elective - One Year required.
While Encore students taking the full time, seat based track through high school generally graduate with 300 semester credits, the graduation minimum for standard graduation is 150 semester credits. Due to Encore's rigorous schedule and diverse schedule, graduating with the multitude of extra credits makes Encore's graduating seniors more attractive for scholarships and admissions into four year university programs.
