    Most high school students apply for shared-time programs in 10th grade. First-year students typically attend in 11th grade from 8:00AM to 10:45AM and return to their home school for lunch and academic classes. Second-year students typically attend in 12th grade from 11:45AM to 2:30PM after completing their academics and lunch at the home school. However, some programs are offered for one year so schedules may vary. Individual class schedules for shared-time students are completed by home school Guidance Counselors ensuring that each student has all the necessary requirements for high school graduation. Click here for program descriptions.
