High School Curriculum

A Fordham education is rigorous. We don’t just expect our faculty to push you to be your best; we expect you to push yourself, too. When we evaluate your transcript, we’re looking to see a challenging curriculum - ideally the most rigorous you could have taken.

At a minimum, we expect you to have taken at least 16 academic credits in the following areas:

  • English (4 years)
  • Science (3-4 years)
  • Mathematics (3-4 years)
  • Social Studies (3-4 years)
  • Foreign Language (2-4 years)
