MIDDL E SCHOO L C ARN EGIE : 6 -8 STUDY OPTIONS College Preparatory Track All Students entering our middle school will be placed on a college preparatory track. Courses taken during these foundational years of Upper School are designed to prepare students for the next step forward, grade nine. Students engage in challenging courses that will prepare them for the courses colleges and universities look at for admission. Advanced Study The Advance Study option is designed for students looking to earn high school credits while still in middle school. Biology, Chemistry, Honors English, Algebra, Geometry, Algebra II and Trigonometry are all courses offered in middle school through Advanced Study at the “a-g” level.


Middle School Carnegie is committed to preparing middle school students for success in high school. We consider our middle school program to be the foundation for a student’s progression through the rest of their academic career. Therefore, we have structured our Carnegie Middle School as a college preparatory level program. Students entering in grades 6-8 will complete coursework in English, Literature, Mathematics, Science, Social Science, Foreign Language, and Physical Education. Advanced courses are offered as well as high school level courses for qualified students.

CAMPUS LIFE Carnegie believes that preparing for college requires more than intensive academics. For this reason, campus life is important at Carnegie as we develop the whole student. We consider ourselves a community and we invite each student into our network of teachers, staff, and students with welcoming arms. At Carnegie High School, we encourage students to participate in after school activities including sports, community service, student government, and student led clubs. As a college preparatory program, students should aim to be well rounded, participating in a variety of on and off campus activities.
