Academics is one of the three components we live by at Averroes.Academics are about the study of sciences. The science of math, art, language, the science of force, the body, the mind etc. At Averroes we take our academic seriously by offering a range of classes for our students. Although we have them in classes, we are continuously working to integrate the sciences and overlap relevancy for students in all the areas.
Our classes are:
- A-G approved

As part of the educational methodology, we believe in opening opportunities to understand what it means to problem-solve and think critically. We incorporate hands-on experiments, project-based learning, service learning, design thinking, collaborative work, discussions, and seminars that compliment the curriculum. All frameworks will be a combination of:
Individual, small group and whole group activities, instruction and assessment.
Multiple forms of media and technology for implementation and assessment.

Dual Enrollment – College Classes
Students begin taking college classes as early as the summer of 9th grade. Our students accumulate college credits similar to AP classes while attaining college experience. These classes are included in each student’s transcripts and weighted into their G.P.A. Many students graduate with up to 40 college credits, which is the equivalent to a full year of college credit.
College Credits are obtained from local community colleges, including Mission, Ohlone, Evergreen, and Laney Colleges.
