Academics

Since 1935, Hallie Turner Private School has established and maintained an academic program of which we are justly proud. Our goal is for students to learn the material presented in each course and to earn credits based on mastery of course material. Our self-paced, individualized approach is suitable for students of varying academic backgrounds and abilities. This academic format allows faster learners to continue to advance while also allowing those who need to spend more time on the subject matter to do so.

    All students must meet the minimum graduation requirements listed below. College Preparatory curriculum is offered. During enrollment, those interested in pursuing College Prep should discuss specific requirements with the director.
