West Nottingham Academy


Home » Academics


The Academic Program at West Nottingham is founded in the traditional curriculum found at most schools but takes advantage of the unique environment that WNA can offer.  Our students take strong foundational classes in English, History, STEM, World Language, Arts, and Business with options for advanced study and AP level work.  As students progress through their high school years, more and more opportunities emerge for students to customize their classes so that by the junior and senior years, all students choose multiple electives and have the opportunity to plan and execute their own independent study programs based on their own personal passions.  Anchoring this diverse curriculum, each student participates in the WNA Core program by grade level which develops leadership skills through a four-year focus on creativity, teamwork, innovation, and entrepreneurism.  Put together, this framework allows for students to have a rigorous education that provides both a common groundwork and unique courses to ensure success in the 21st century world.
