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, mathematics, science social studies, and world language along with the creative and performing arts —and along the way we help students to gain the necessary skills, develop the habits of mind and find solid resources to support their learning success.

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. 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 graduate with the skills and confidence to support their individual post-secondary goals and go on to find success and fulfillment in all walks of life.
