We place strong value in experiential and strength-based learning which is coupled with a well-rounded college preparatory curriculum. Our course credits are given in one semester increments to allow for robust and thoughtful discovery of many topics within each core content area. It also allows room for exploration during one of our signature program’s Winter Term.
To graduate from The Leelanau School, students are required to successfully earn a minimum number of semester credits in core and elective content areas.
