Academic Policy

Program or Schedule Change

The information cited in this catalogue represents the 2019 - 2020 course offerings. Specific courses are subject to change or cancellation from one year to the next.
Students will have two weeks in which to add or drop a course in their program. They must receive permission of the respective teacher's class, their Advisor, the Chair of the department sponsoring the course, and the Assistant Upper School Head.

Course Withdrawal

Withdrawing from a course at any time after the initial “add-drop” period will be noted on a student’s transcript as “WF” (withdraw – failing) or “WP” (withdraw – passing) according to his academic performance to date. 
Seniors should be aware that they will need to report course of study for both first and second semesters on their college applications.  Any course added or dropped after filing an application will need to be communicated in writing to each college.  If a student has already enrolled, the student will have to contact the college before finalizing any changes.
