Broughton students take eight courses per year, which provides them with the opportunity to develop knowledge and thinking skills in core courses as well as through our rich offering of electives in the visual and performing arts, athletics, career and technical education, family and consumer sciences, Air Force ROTC, and other programs. Most courses required for graduation or college admission are offered at the academic and honors levels in grades 9 and 10 and often also at the AP and IB levels in grades 11 and 12.
With over 130 course offerings taught by experienced, knowledgeable, engaging teachers, Broughton has fantastic resources to meet the academic needs of students with diverse interests, backgrounds, and goals.
Additionally, Broughton provides significant academic support. Teachers work with students before and after school throughout the year and provide extensive exam review sessions prior to state end of course tests. "Smart Lunch" is available daily for a student to catch up on work or receive additional help from faculty members. We also benefit from our proximity to the Wade Edwards Learning Lab (WELL) across St. Mary's Street, which offers a computer lab open in the afternoon and evenings in addition to after school programs, including tutoring by Broughton National Honor Society members and varied seminars and enrichment programs..
