BASIS Curriculum School students are prepared for success beyond our doors.

When students earn the BASIS Diploma, they are among the world's best prepared high school graduates. The BASIS diploma involves students completing a minimum of eight AP courses and at least six AP Exams during their high school tenure but many BASIS Curriculum School graduates choose to take as many as 20 AP Exams in preparation for their post-high school experience. That's one reason so many BASIS Curriculum School graduates earn distinction as AP Scholars.

Students' exposure to these advanced courses also translates into success on college entrance exams. Our students' high scores on the PSAT exam earn them recognition as National Merit Scholars which often leads to generous scholarships. Their high scores on the SAT and ACT exams position them for acceptance at the world's most prestigious colleges and universities.
