Academics

Wye River Upper School offers a challenging academic program that’s designed and delivered with the needs of students who learn differently in mind.

Students at Wye River explore the same college-preparatory subjects they would take at any other quality high school—English, math, arts & music, social studies, science, and foreign language—and along the way we help them gain the skills, find the resources, and develop the tools they need to succeed doing challenging academic work.

No two students take exactly the same path. Students have a personalized Student Development Plan that’s tailored to their needs and guides their academic program.

Classes blend traditional learning with a rich array of experiences outside the classroom, so our students learn in ways that research and experience shows they’ll learn best. Special offerings like our 21st Century Class enrich learning by involving students more deeply. The resources surrounding us—the Centreville community, Corsica River, the state capital in Annapolis, the Chesapeake Bay—help students learn in ways that wouldn’t be possible in a classroom setting.

The result? All students gain acceptance to college, and they go on from Wye River to find success and fulfillment in many walks of life.
