Credit Courses

All courses meet the same standards and cover the same material as the regular school year courses.  Credit courses meet U.C. “a-g” requirements.

You are strongly advised to review any course pre-requisites and consult with your child’s academic counselor to ensure that your student is ready and qualified to take the course that you have requested. It is also your sole responsibility to be sure that your child’s school will accept credit for this course. Daily attendance in class for credit classes is mandatory. If a student misses more than 2 days of class, credit cannot be granted for the course. 

Incoming Freshmen

Incoming Freshmen are only allowed to take Credit Courses after a careful review of the individual candidate’s academic performance, recommendations and test scores. Please contact Matthew Ramos, Director of Admissions at matthew.ramos@jesuithighschool.org for information.

You’ll receive an email confirming your student’s placement in class. The balance of your tuition must be paid in full by the cutoff date. The required textbook list will be posted in early April. Students will be expected to have the required textbook in their possession on the first day of class.

This course is specifically designed for Jesuit High students who are advancing to Algebra 2 HONORS. In addition to Euclidean plane geometry and geometric figures, the course provides extensive theoretical consideration for the use of formal logic in proofs as well as problem-solving. Trigonometry and its applications are introduced to enable the transition into Algebra 2 Honors the next academic year. This placement requires the recommendation of your current Algebra teacher and the approval of your counselor and the Director of Scheduling.

Pre-Calculus

June 10 – July 17: 8:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. 

This 6-week course prepares students for Calculus by introducing and reinforcing the algebraic skills required for success in that course. The first three weeks will focus on simplifying expressions, solving equations and inequalities, functions, graphing, transformations, higher degree polynomial functions, and inverse functions. The last three weeks will focus on transcendental functions (exponential and logarithmic) and trigonometry.

Students will learn and apply fundamental identities and the Unit Circle to a variety of problems, apply transformations to graph trigonometric functions. Building upon that, students will be expected to apply other trigonometric identities (addition/subtraction, double & half-angle formulas, sum-to-product, and product-to-sum) to solve a variety of problems. The course concludes with inverse trig functions, applying the laws of sines and cosines, vectors, and representing complex numbers in trigonometric form.

Prerequisites:
Jesuit students: Open to current 11th-grade students earning an A in regular Algebra 2 or B in Algebra 2H and subject to instructor approval. The course may also be taken to remediate a Pre-Calculus grade earned during the regular academic year.
Non-Jesuit students: Must have successfully completed Algebra 2 or Integrated Math 1, 2, and 3.
