Academic Electives & Special Programs
Applied Learning strives to provide students with opportunities in engaging activities that will generate interest, spark passion, increase the application of skills and knowledge, and facilitate communities that cultivate productive, civically-minded members of society. We do this through six areas: Civic Engagement, Driver's Education, Music & Performing Arts, Physical Education, STEM & Computer Science, and Visual Arts.
