Can I take classes at MLHS?
Vanguard Academy wants students to pursue their passions. As a result, we understand there might be situations where a student requests to take one class at MLHS. We will do our best to accommodate but cannot guarantee the requests. Possible classes include Choir, Band, JROTC, Ag class (required for FFA participation), and release time for Seminary. While Seminary is highly likely to be accommodated, other classes may be more difficult to accommodate. Again, requests will be considered, however, see below for the limitations that exist.
Core credits (English, science, math, history) and most electives will be earned at Vanguard.
Situations that might affect a student’s ability to take a class at MLHS:
- Availability in classes at MLHS: Although we try to match students with their class requests, there might not be room in the specific class at MLHS.
- There will be times during the school day when Vanguard students must be at Vanguard. The class at MLHS must not conflict with those specific times.
- MLHS adjusts its master schedule throughout the summer. As such, a Vanguard student will not know for sure if the class they wish to take at MLHS will be available until late August.
- Class requests will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis. Students should indicate the request on their Vanguard Application under the “other important information” section on the form.
