Upper School

On any given day, Upper School students might trace the bullet trajectory from an attempted homicide in forensics class, role-play Colonial Americans in debating the Articles of Confederation, design online surveys of students and faculty about room temperature for the Board’s Buildings & Grounds Committee, or translate Coke commercials on Spanish television.

Outside of class, students are involved in a wide range of clubs, activities, and athletics. Ultimately, Upper School students at Good Hope Country Day School have two key responsibilities:

  1. Pursue their passions and undertake rigorous coursework across disciplines so that they are prepared to excel at the college of their choice; and
  2. Serve as role models for the rest of our learning community—our Middle and Lower School students.

Twenty-four credits earned while in high school are the minimum required for graduation. One credit is equivalent to a forty-five minute class period every day for the entire school year. In addition to the academic requirements, all students are required to do sixty hours of community service in order to graduate.
