Guidelines for Designing a Course of Study, by Class

JUNIOR (9th grade): To be admitted as a four-year student, a candidate must have successfully completed the eighth grade in another school. Juniors ordinarily take English 110, 120 and 130, mathematics, and a foreign language (classical or modern). All Juniors are required to take a partial-credit course in Health and Human Development all year. They choose their other courses from those listed in this catalog.

LOWER (10th grade): To be admitted as a three-year student, a candidate must have successfully completed the ninth grade in another school. Lowers take English 210, 220, and 230, and, ordinarily, mathematics and a foreign language (classical or modern). They choose their other courses from those listed in this catalog.

UPPER (11th grade): To be admitted as a two-year student, a candidate must have successfully completed the 10th grade in another school. Uppers take English 310, 320, and 330. They choose their other courses from those listed in this catalog.

SENIOR (12th grade): To be admitted as a one-year student, a candidate must have successfully completed the 11th or 12th grade in another school. Seniors take English 410 and 420. One-year Seniors design academic programs with their advisers in consultation with the offices of the Dean of Students and College Counseling. The programs will reflect consideration of the subjects studied at previous secondary schools, college admission requirements, and the desirable breadth and depth of study called for in Exeter's four-year program. To rank as a Senior, a student must be following a program of study that will permit completion of the diploma requirements in three terms.
