Bishop DuBourg has always boasted a successful honors’ program. In 2012, we took our honors’ program to the next level, as we established the Academy of Advanced Studies. The Academy of Advanced Studies offers a rigorous program of academics and requires an increased level of work and commitment from its members. Students who have scored 85% or above on standardized tests and who have a B+ or higher grade point average are encouraged to apply for the Academy. Students enrolled in the Academy of Advanced Studies have additional graduation requirements including at least 18 of the 23 honors’ or Advanced College Credit courses. The Academy students will be honored at graduation and their transcripts will reflect their achievements. Space in the program is limited each school year.

The Academy of Advanced Studies challenged me academically with its rigorous course load. Because I was able to take so many classes for college credit, I graduated with my Bachelor’s degree in 2.5 years, saving me time and money.
