Upper School Curriculum
College preparatory academic program: The academic year is divided into 2 semesters, and most courses are year-long. Graduation requirements include 4 credits of English Composition and Literature, 3 credits of social studies, 3 credits of laboratory science, 4 credits of mathematics, 2 credits of foreign language, 1 credit of physical education, 1/2 credit of speech, 1/2 credit of fine arts, 1/2 credit of computer, and 2 1/2 credits of electives to complete a minimum of 21 credits. All students are required to take five courses per semester (four of which must be academic core courses).
Challenge Scholar Program: To earn the designation of a Challenge Scholar, a student must successfully complete the Challenge Curriculum with an overall GPA of at least 85% and a semester grade of at least 80% in all courses taken in grades 11 and 12. A Challenge Scholar must take at least one honors course in each academic discipline and a minimum of nine AP or honors courses offered to juniors and seniors.
Independent Studies Program: Heritage Hall offers the Independent Studies Program to highly self-motivated, intellectually curious students who choose a topic of interest from any formal, chaired discipline (science, math, art, literature, philosophy, history, music, drama, leadership) to study in-depth under the guidance of a faculty advisor, culminating in an agreed-upon formal assessment and presentation of learning to the Heritage Hall community.
Service Learning Capstone: All Heritage Hall Upper School students perform a minimum of 25 hours of service learning per year as a graduation requirement. In place of the service learning requirement, seniors have the opportunity to investigate a key area of social concern (poverty, justice, health, family, prejudice), conduct interviews, perform service in the area of interest, and ultimately compose a major research paper and presentation proposing a way to address the issue.
Peer Leadership Class: Select seniors are admitted into the PLC through a competitive application process. This two-semester interdisciplinary leadership course begins with a summer wilderness expedition and places responsibility on student leaders to direct weekly peer mentoring meetings with 7th and 9th grade students.
Service learning: Combined, Heritage Hall students participate in approximately 20,000 hours of service to our community each year, beginning at age 3 through grade 12.
Average class size: 15 students
Early Childhood Center: 8:1 student-teacher ratio
Faculty with advanced degrees: 46%
Athletics: Students have an opportunity to compete in state championships in 20 different varsity sports (10 sports offerings for girls and 10 for boys) as part of the OSSAA (Oklahoma Secondary School Activities Association). Heritage Hall has won 83 state championships and 59 state runner-up awards since 1975.
