4 credits required for college admission
Mathematics is a tool and a gift through which we can study God’s creation; math courses at FVL are developed in agreement with this core idea. College-bound students are considered qualified for college if they have taken and received satisfactory grades in the following math courses: Algebra 1, Geometry, and Algebra 2/Trigonometry. Higher-level institutions strongly prefer a math course beyond Algebra 2/Trigonometry (e.g., Pre-Calculus). Most colleges desire that a math course be taken during the senior year (e.g., Algebra 2/Trigonometry, Pre-Calculus, or Statistics).
Insufficient earned credits and/or failure to achieve satisfactory grades in these high school courses will likely require retaking the courses, sometimes not for credit, or having to take refresher courses in these subject areas. For most four-year colleges or universities, acceptance will be denied without satisfactory grades in these subjects. Self-help aids, teacher help, and student-tutor assistance are available. Parents or students may initiate the request for such assistance.
