Academic curriculum will generally be organized in, approximately, sixty (60) hour blocks of instruction. The academic core classes will contain material substantially equal to that provided by a conventional high school. Heartland High School will utilize the adopted McCall-Donnelly School District Curriculum. Academic core curriculum may also be delivered online using web-based programs. The instructional staff will carefully monitor course content to assure that the curriculum objectives for each subject are met and mastered by students before credit is granted. In all cases completion of approximately 60 hours of instruction plus necessary homework and research are required.
