GRADE 7 HONORS
Wappingers Central School District begins its Honors programs in grade 7. Students must apply for acceptance into the program. At grade 7, the Honors programs include math/science honors and ELA/social studies honors. Math/science honors are accelerated courses, culminating with grade 8 students taking the Algebra Regents and the Earth Science Regents. Once accepted into the Honors programs, students must maintain an 85 or higher average.
If a student is not accepted into the honors program at the junior high school level, a student may still gain access to high school level honors courses with an appropriate grade point average and teacher recommendation.
