Requirements in the program include specific Advanced Placement and Honors level courses in one of two designated "strands" (Math/Science, Humanities/Fine Arts), satisfactory completion of an original senior project under the supervision of an assigned faculty mentor, and participation in an extra-curricular enrichment component. The program is open to qualified sophomores.
  • The St. Isidore Cyber Program

    Named for the patron saint of computers and the internet, this exciting program weaves together elements of our existing curriculum with new and innovative instruction in cyber studies, computer science and engineering. The St. Isidore program—consisting of four classes plus a capstone field experience—goes beyond traditional STEM programs with an interdisciplinary approach that integrates humanities, liberal arts, and technology at each level of the program. Students completing the entire program will receive a certificate in cyber studies, though all eligible students can participate in program classes at different levels.

    Established in 1921, the National Honor Society or NHS, recognizes students achievements in the combined areas of scholarship, leadership, character, and service. Based on academic qualifications, eligible juniors and seniors are invited to apply for membership in this national organization.
  • The Environmental Studies Program

    This program takes full advantage of opportunities made available to a campus and community located on the shores of the Chesapeake Bay, North America's largest estuary. Students in this program explore the responsibilities associated with environmental stewardship through academic study, hands-on experience, community service, and a capstone field project component. Students also take advantage of a wide variety of partnering opportunities with local, regional, and national environmental organizations in the Baltimore-Washington-Annapolis area.
