XCL ASB High school program is divided into 4 years:
- Freshman Year: Freshman year is a time for students to get acclimated to high school and to start taking the core academic courses that they will need to graduate.
- Sophomore Year: Sophomore year is a time for students to continue taking the core academic courses and to start exploring their interests in elective courses.
- Junior Year: Junior year is a time for students to start preparing for college by taking Advanced Placement (AP) courses and by getting involved in extracurricular activities that will look good on their college applications.
- Senior Year: Senior year is a time for students to finalize their college plans, to take the SAT or ACT, and to enjoy their last year of high school.
The best high school program for a student will depend on their individual needs and interests. Some factors to consider when choosing a high school program include the school's academic reputation, its extracurricular offerings, and its location. Students should also visit the school and talk to current students and faculty to get a feel for the school's culture.
