As our district's traditional comprehensive high school, Currituck County High serves approximately 1,000 students in grades 9-12. We provide each student an extensive selection of courses and academic programs to choose from, including college preparatory, career and technical education, as well as honors and advanced placement classes. Our instructional day operates on a 4x4 block schedule with 85 minutes per class period. In addition to traditional instruction on the 4x4 block, a Power Hour offers students a 30 minute lunch period and 30 minutes for other instructional opportunities, including tutoring, clubs, special topics, and/or engaging in physical activities or socialization.
We are so proud to announce that Currituck County High School recently became one of only 1,800 high schools worldwide endorsed to implement the innovative AP Capstone program offered through the College Board. This endeavor includes two courses taken in sequence, the AP Seminar and the AP Research component, which help students pursue the additional challenge in high school of further developing skills essential to collegiate success, including research, collaboration and communication. WELL DONE, KNIGHTS!
