At University Laboratory School, the high school years are viewed as a time of preparation for college. A caring and skilled team of educators guides students toward independence as they explore their strengths and interests and apply those to future opportunities.
Our high school program of studies consists of courses in the arts, English Language Arts, mathematics, Physical Education, science, social studies, technology, and World Language. In addition to a traditional college preparatory curriculum, a robust selection of Advanced Placement (AP), Dual Enrollment (DE), and International Baccalaureate (IB) courses are offered to qualified students.
Dual enrollment courses are taught on our campus through Louisiana State University (LSU) and Southeastern Louisiana University (SLU). They offer students opportunities to complete high school requirements and acquire college credit hours simultaneously.
Advanced Placement courses are taught by AP certified instructors and follow the required curriculum from College Board. Students who take AP courses take the AP exams at the end of the school year may earn college credit.
Honors Courses (H) are taught at each grade level and are based on the state curriculum. These courses are more rigorous and require students to study more in-depth concepts and are designed to challenge students.
International Baccalaureate courses follow the international standards set by the International Baccalaureate Organization (IBO). Made up of three required components consisting of Theory of Knowledge, the Extended Essay, and Creativity, Activity, Service (CAS), the Diploma Program (DP) core aims to broaden students’ educational experience and challenge them to apply their knowledge and skills. Students who pursue the full IB Diploma take IB-level classes in all academic areas. Both full diploma and IB course students complete assessments throughout the course that may result in college credit.
