Dear Incoming Students and Families,
Welcome to Branson! We’re delighted that you’ll be joining us, and we look forward to working with you next year. As we plan for next year, we hope to orient you to our academic program and make sure you have the information you need about how we place students into classes. Please familiarize yourself with the Branson Curriculum Guide 2017-2018. The course descriptions in the Curriculum Guide will give you a detailed picture of Branson academics, including each department’s sequence of courses and homework philosophy, which identifies the skills and intellectual habits we cultivate in each area of study.
As part of getting each student off to a good start at Branson, we need to identify proper placement in each subject area. All freshmen take English I and Roots of Civilization. The Math, Language, Science and Arts departments have their own procedures for determining placement. Most Branson student take four years of each core subject.
Feel free to contact me with questions.
Assistant Head of School for Academics
