Like all Massachusetts public schools, Argosy Collegiate Charter School is required to abide by state learning standards. Our core curriculum aligns with the Massachusetts Curriculum Framework, which provides teachers, scholars and families with clear and shared expectations for what all scholars should know and be able to do at the end of each year. Our students participate in MCAS testing as required by the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (DESE) and are held to the same assessment standards as all students across the Commonwealth.
As a college preparatory school, our middle school program is designed to ensure all scholars are well-prepared to access our high school program and participate in early college opportunities. Scholars rotate through core subject area classes daily, which include ELA, STEM, Global Literacy and Math. In addition, scholars are scheduled for a daily enrichment class
and a support block. Enrichment classes include art, gym, collegiate skills and financial literacy. Support block provides an opportunity for all scholars to receive targeted literacy and math enrichment and intervention at their level.
Our high school program prioritizes dual-enrollment and early college learning opportunities while also ensuring all scholars take the required courses and earn the number of credits needed to meet Massachusetts state graduation requirements. Core subject area classes, which include English, Math, History and STEM, are taught both in-house and in partnership with Bristol Community College for dual-enrollment credit. Qualifying scholars can opt-in to early college opportunities as early as Grade 9. Scholars at the high school level have additional choice when it comes to core content and elective courses and are able to choose classes that best align with their interests and future career plans.
