Elective Possibilities for Brittain Academy High School

High School electives are typically courses that fall outside of the main core academic subject areas (English, Math, History, Science and Foreign Language). These courses are not required, but a student chooses to take them. Electives may reflect a teen’s interests, introduce or improve skills, or be directly related to a future career. Electives do not require as much time or work as a core course, but should include educational content. If a letter grade will be given for the elective, a method of evaluation should be decided prior to the beginning of the course.
