9th-12th Curriculum

During grades, 9-12 students will focus on time management, career and college readiness skills, and exposure to technology. EVA nurtures students throughout high school, putting interest-led exploration at the forefront. We are committed to helping students find and follow their passions while equipping them with the skills needed for success in the 21st century.

There are many paths to success

At EVA we believe students should have choice. Success is not achieved in one particular way. Many of our students continue their education at a 4-year university, while others choose to explore apprenticeships, trades, or other paths to success.

High school students can harness the power of individualized learning by charting their path.  Students take courses that meet State standards and we offer an extensive selection of electives in Fine Arts, Applied Arts, CTE, World Languages, Science, Social Studies, and moreCheck out the current course catalog for the options for students. 

Students learn how to carefully read, interpret, and analyze literature and nonfiction works of cultural or historical significance. At each grade level, students practice narrative, informational, and argument writing, and develop public speaking skills by delivering presentations and participating in discussions with their peers.

Students begin with Algebra 1 to deepen their understanding of linear and exponential relationships, then progress to Geometry where they learn to explain geometric relationships and form a basis for formal mathematical arguments. In order to graduate, students must complete the third year of math and may choose among Algebra II, Probability and Statistics, or Practical Math. Students planning to attend a 4-years school should take Algebra II in order to meet college entrance requirements, and are encouraged to continue to Trigonometry/Pre-Calculus. 

We cater to a large scope of interests within science. All Students will explore Earth Science, Biology, Chemistry and Physics that include hands on lab analysis. In addition, we offer a number of independent science elective opportunities including astronomy, forensics, environmental and veterinary science. 

Our 3-year progression for social studies takes our students on a comprehensive journey through the ages. We begin with Geography and World Cultures where students examine both the staggering problems and astounding accomplishments of the twentieth century, with a focus on political and social history. Students in their second year will move on to Modern US History where they will gain a comprehensive view of American history from the industrial revolution of the late nineteenth century to recent events. The Last year of Social Studies at EVA focuses on US Government and politics. In this class, students take a close look at the political culture of our country and gain insight into the challenges faced by citizens, elected government officials, political activists, and others.

The well-being of our students is the primary focus at EVA. Health and Physical education helps our students make healthy choices and develop important lifestyle skills to thrive. Physical fitness is just one aspect. We also explore topics of nutrition, body positivity, confidence, and respect.

Project-Based Learning

Project-Based Learning (PBL) courses replicate work environments to develop teamwork and collaboration skills and prepare students for life beyond the classroom. Students work in teams to complete real-world projects . These courses will give students valuable skills and experience to prepare them for work and project management in future jobs. Students gain valuable real-world skills, practice working in a team, and improve their confidence.
