Typical Courseload

Non-shaded areas represent graduation requirements, while the shaded boxes represent disciplines in which students can choose elective courses from either the BUA or the University.

  • All Boston University Academy courses are honors level and there is no tracking.
  • Math and language placement is determined by a placement exam (not by grade level).
  • BUA classes are 50 minutes long (with the exception of 75-minute blocks for labs/art/gym) with a 10- or 15-minute passing time in between periods.
  • One period of every day is reserved for Academic Block; students may use this time as a study hall and meet with teachers.

*The shaded courses above are undergraduate courses taken at Boston University.
