Tuesdays & Thursdays
Please note, this class meets twice per week.
This course is typically recommended for advanced 10th,
and 11th -12th grade students.
Geometry (to have included basic trigonometry)
Algebra II (see below)
This course requires a placement test prior to registration.
No placement test is required if the student took both prerequisite courses at WHCT, AND scored an A or B.
Students who will be concurrently enrolled in Algebra 2
at WHCT may take the placement test if they took both
Algebra I and Geometry at WHCT, AND scored an A or B.
If you have a question about this policy, please contact the tutor or the director.
