The Banff School Curriculum

Our school leaders work closely with each student, individually planning their course schedule each year. The Banff School Curriculum does not work on a "cookie-cutter" system where students are placed in a specific class solely due to their current grade level.


Multiple Paths to Success

The Banff School Curriculum offers two-degree programs for our 9th-12th grade students (some courses may be taken in 8th grade for high school credit). Our "Recommended" diploma plan gives our students an exceptional high school experience, putting students on the trajectory for lifelong success and preparation for the rigors of college academics. For our most diligent students, we also offer a "Distinguished" diploma plan. This plan recognizes students who demonstrate high levels of rigor within their studies and commitment to their academic careers.
