The Program of Studies describes programs and courses offered in the middle and high schools of Williamsburg-James City County Public Schools (WJCC).Descriptions of courses offered in grades 6-8 and grades 9-12 are grouped by discipline.Grade-level designations represent the grade at which most students take a described course.Exceptions to stated grade levels may be made to meet the educational needs of an individual student.Detailed information is available in the school counseling department at each middle and high school.
Families are asked to review this Program of Studies together.Our hope is that the Program of Studies will generate discussions about types of diplomas, career opportunities and preparation, post-secondary education and training requirements, and the role of educational decisions on future opportunities.
