The Math program at Herberger Young Scholars Academy is specifically designed to allow students to achieve at their appropriate level, regardless of age or cohort.
All incoming students to Herberger Young Scholars Academy take multiple math placement tests in the first week of the school year. Based on the results of these tests, student will be placed into an appropriate math class.
Once in a class, students are allowed to progress at their own pace through the curriculum; for students, this may mean completing an entire math course in a single semester, while for others, it may mean doing so in 3 or more semesters. The goal is deep understanding and comfort with numeracy to ensure students will be successful as the progress on their math journey.
Herberger Young Scholars Academy offers a variety of math courses including Algebra, Geometry, Algebra 2/Trigonometry, Pre-Calculus, Calculus and Statistics.
When a Herberger Young Scholars Academy student is ready, they can enroll in college courses at Arizona State University and earn college credit for their work. This partnership allows those students who are interested to expand their learning in the field of mathematics far beyond what is traditionally available at the high school level.
