Academic Assistant Principal
Edward Douglas White Catholic High School conducts a four-year high school program and an eighth-grade program. Students must complete four years of high school studies earning 25 credits in a rigorous college preparatory curriculum in order to graduate.
E. D. White offers courses to provide educational opportunities that will enhance the continued growth and development of its students. In order to encourage students to work to their fullest potential, to use their talents most effectively and to give themselves the broadest possible education, each student is encouraged to work closely with our academic school counselors and their parents in creating each year’s academic schedule.
Our campus is divided into two major classroom buildings. Eighth and Ninth graders attend class in the Perè Menard Building. Our main building houses 10th through 12th graders. The main building boasts complete chemistry, biology and physics labs/classrooms. A fully equipped media center with spacious resource and study areas is located at the center of the Perè Menard Building.
Honors courses are offered to provide students with opportunities for educational growth in classes that are typically more rigorous and that move at an accelerated pace.
Advanced Placement (AP) courses are available at the junior and senior levels. These academically challenging courses prepare students for the AP exams, which may earn them college credit.
The goal of the Academic Enhancement Program is to offer services to students with learning differences such as dyslexia, and to develop skills that are necessary to succeed in the E. D. White curriculum.
