Course Offerings

The table below is a working document of our current course offerings, aligned to the subjects and credits required by the state.  This will always be a ‘working document’ due to our need to be flexible and accommodating to the needs of individual students.  Courses listed below are all adjustable based on the needs of students with the exception of courses indicated by an asterisk, which are required for all students.  In our highly individualized program, the sky is the limit (literally, we can make obtaining a pilot’s license possible).

Peace Valley School’s requirements for graduation are similar but more expansive than Oregon State requirements, emphasizing the subjects of Social Sciences, Physical Education and Health, and Second Languages.
