Dear Parents, Guardians, and Community Members:

The Kendall High School is committed to providing our students with numerous academic opportunities so they are prepared to enjoy rewarding lives after completing high school. Counselors and administrators are continuously researching additional courses that can be offered so that every student's academic needs are met. The following programs are currently offered:

Regents Level Courses - In New York State, Regents Examinations are statewide standardized examinations in core high school subjects required for a Regents Diploma. Most students, with some limited exceptions, are required to take the Regents courses and the corresponding examinations. To graduate, students are required to have earned appropriate credits in a number of specific subjects by passing year-long classes, after which they must pass Regents examinations in some of the subject areas. For higher achieving students, a Regents with Advanced designation, and an Honors designation, are also offered.

GCC (Genesee Community College) The Advanced Studies program offers courses taught in the high schools by high school faculty who are approved by GCC. These courses follow the same guidelines and learning objectives as those taught on campus. The courses are taught by familiar Kendall faculty. Students can earn college and high school credit at the same time. Additional advantages are:
  • Earning college credit for approximately 1/3 the cost
  • Credits transfer to State University of New York (SUNY) colleges such as Brockport and some private institutions
  • Introduction to college level curriculum and courses
  • Receiving 1.03 weighting on their final average when enrolled in the course
  • Being a college student, receiving an ID card, and having access to a college campus (library, facilities, etc.), and other discounts
  • Many students enter college after high school as a sophomore (students can earn upwards of 40 credits)

3-1-3 Courses - The 3-1-3 program allows select students who have completed the first three years of high school to take two courses for college credit at Kendall and two courses for college credit at Brockport per semester. Participating students receive a minimum of 12 college credits each semester upon successfully completing the courses. The 3-1-3 program enables seniors to earn their high school diploma after four years and at the same time get a head start toward a college degree.

AP (Advanced Placement) - At nearly every college in the country, students' academic record is the most important part of their college application. The folks in the admissions office want to see that students have taken the most challenging courses available. Success in difficult courses is the surest sign of students' preparedness for college. The most challenging courses are college-level Advanced Placement classes. The advantages to taking AP exams are:
  • College level curriculum recognized nationwide. (Students must score a 3, 4, or 5 to receive credit.)
  • Receiving 1.05 weighting on their final average when enrolled in the course
  • AP courses are noted on transcripts when sent to colleges, which colleges notice
  • Kids own these scores. Each family determines if they want to submit results to colleges.
  • The school pays for exams so all students have equal access
WEMOCO (Western Monroe Orleans Counties) - Monroe 2-Orleans BOCES provides quality, cost-effective educational services in partnership with school districts and the community in a manner that supports excellence and equity for all learners. BOCES 2 is the educational partner of choice, serving the diverse needs of the community, helping all students achieve their full potential.

It would be impossible to outline all of the services and programs we offer our students every year; however, I thought it would be helpful to have these brief overviews for some of the unique opportunities that are offered for our students. We are committed to preparing our students for a rewarding career, the military, or college. Please email me if you have any questions or suggestions for additions or improvement. Our counselors will begin to schedule juniors in November.


Sincerely,
Carol D'Agostino
