Courses

At ANC, we offer a unique academic program that allows our students to benefit from the best aspects of an all-girls or all-boys education while also enjoying the camaraderie and collaboration of a co-ed environment. Our curriculum provides a careful blend of required courses and electives. This gives every student a strong foundation in math, science, history, and language, while allowing each student to explore their interests, develop their talents, and prepare for college.
