Frederick Gunn students attend classes six days a week and follow a block schedule. Classes meet four times per week for two long and two short blocks. Wednesdays and Saturdays are half days for academics, allowing for our athletic teams to compete in the afternoons. 

The typical freshman schedule will include one class in each of the following subjects:

  • English

  • History

  • Science

  • Mathematics

  • World Languages

In addition to these five core classes, freshmen are required to take a one-term course called Pathways, which is part of our CJD Curriculum. Freshmen may also choose to enroll in a single-term course in the Arts, or private music or dance instruction, which is a full-year commitment. An additional one-term, elective course (for example, in the Arts or IDEAS Lab) may be added during the freshman year if a student’s schedule allows and with the approval of the Academic Office.
