Upper School Curriculum
Wildwood’s upper school curriculum provides an intellectually challenging experience for students as they refine the skills necessary for a successful transition to college. Through 10th grade, each student takes humanities—an interdisciplinary blend of literature and history—mathematics, science, and Spanish.
Honors courses and advanced studies are offered for students who wish to pursue additional coursework areas of special interest and abilities. Upper school arts and academic electives invite students to explore their creativity and nurture talents on campus and in the community.
Wildwood’s graduation requirements in the core academic subjects fulfill the admission requirements for University of California campuses and other highly competitive colleges.
Advisory meets four days a week throughout the upper school, while students also enjoy opportunities to build and strengthen relationships with peers on competitive sports teams, in the performing arts, social action clubs, and science clubs and competitions.
Upper school enrichment programs include off-site internships, local and international community involvement, and senior projects, which test student initiative while engaging students in a variety of experiences beyond the classroom.
Seniors are required to plan and complete three independent senior projects, each an opportunity to illuminate personal and academic growth. The projects reference the Habits of Mind and Heart, underlying each student’s Wildwood education as they lay the foundation for college and the real world.
