High School Curriculum
Intellectual Advancement and Creativity
Dalat International School provides a North American-based education, preparing students for entry into colleges and universities around the world. At the completion of four years of study and 24 units of credit, students receive the American high school diploma. The curriculum and instruction provide a broad basis in general education and a strong preparation for university systems worldwide; however, possession of a high school diploma does not guarantee admission to a post-secondary institution.
Students planning to pursue postsecondary education outside of North America should consult country, and university-specific, entrance requirements. Families should do so in the beginning of grade 9, planning for necessary courses from the beginning of high school. If a student requires courses not offered by Dalat, the family is encouraged to consult with the school’s e-Learning coordinator.
Transfer credits from Internet education, correspondence, and homeschool courses may be considered for transfer credit and grade (and included in the Dalat transcript) if received through an accredited institution. Please meet with the high school counselor for more details. Courses taken for enrichment through other institution after enrollment at Dalat are not included on Dalat transcripts.
In preparation for post-secondary admission, students need to plan for taking standardized exams such as the Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT), American College Test (ACT), Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL), Advanced Placement (AP) exams, and/or the SAT II subject tests in the appropriate areas required by colleges or universities. In addition to the high school diploma and standardized tests, students need to research other requirements set forth by the college of their choice (e.g. grade point average, preparatory courses).
