Cardinal Ritter’s academic programs are divided into three groups – honors, academic plus, and academic. Students are placed in one of the three tracks based on standardized scores, teacher recommendations, and previous report cards. This provides for classes with a smaller range of cognitive ability, allowing teachers to pace their curriculum to students with similar aptitude. Results include an increase in breadth and depth of curriculum while continuing to teach to the standards of Indiana at all levels.
For students capable of in-depth consideration of concepts and more independent study and research
For students demonstrating sufficient preparation and aptitude to handle standard high school curriculum
For students who need greater emphasis on basic skills and concepts
Cardinal Ritter offers more than 100 courses, including Advanced Placement (AP) classes, throughout nine academic departments.Our honors, academic plus, and academic instructional levels accommodate a student’s individual learning needs.
