Most of St. John Neumann Catholic High School’s courses are categorized as “college-prep” classes. These courses are designed for the average student enrolled in grade level classes in the college preparatory program. College preparatory classes will prepare you to enter colleges and universities across the United States.

Honors Courses

Honors courses are designed to meet the needs of talented students who are highly motivated. To qualify for honors, you must demonstrate independent study skills, maturity, a proven ability to multi-task, and a strong commitment to academics. Honors courses are allotted 0.5 points toward your GPA.

Advanced Placement Courses

AP courses at St. John Neumann Catholic High School are designed to present college level material and prepare you to take the College Board sponsored Advanced Placement (AP) exam at the end of the year. Most universities will award college credit based on successful AP exam scores, but it is recommended to check with your desired school for their requirements.

To qualify for AP courses, you must have demonstrated independent study skills, maturity, an ability to multi-task, a strong commitment to academics, and have a recommendation of the department chair/and or guidance. AP classes are allotted 1.0 points toward your GPA.

Via Veritas Advanced Curriculum

Motivated students who score a composite 90th percentile on the placement test are invited to apply for admission into Via Veritas.

Via Veritas is intended for talented students with a zeal for knowledge and for applying their own intellect to change the world and who obviously enjoy the utmost educational challenge. These students will experience an AP and Honors driven curriculum amid a small, highly select group of high achieving classmates. For four years, they will also embark on a focused, exploratory 4-year research and service project that culminates in the Neumann Via Veritas diploma. Supplemental specialized college advising may also be extended to qualifying students.

Each selected candidate will embark on a curriculum that begins with an Advanced Placement class in the freshman year, and a slate of challenging Honors courses. Three years of choice Honors, Advanced Placement, and dual enrollment courses sprinkled with engaging electives in the areas of music, science or computers will follow. All the while, Via Veritas students will also concentrate on a project exploring a selected topic of global societal importance, this project to be developed and completed over 4 years at Neumann. The student will interject creative, inspired thought into a researched essay that will also be supported by hands-on community service work.

To apply for Via Veritas, invited candidates will submit 3 years of transcripts that reveal strong grades, display of good character, and solid performance in a group timed writing in early January.

Dual Enrollment Program

St. John Neumann Catholic High School has secured partnerships with neighboring colleges enabling you to participate in the dual enrollment program. You may enter the Dual Enrollment Program as a sophomore if you meet the requirements. Please check with Guidance if you are interested.
