    increasingly competitive and students who
    challenge themselves academically are preparing
    themselves for collegiate level work.

  • When we review a students application file, the
    senior year schedule is one of the core pieces we
    take into consideration. A weak senior year
    schedule (more non-academic courses/FLEX periods
    than academic classes) is considered a real red
    flag in this review process.
