High School

Academic Overview

Through an extensive curriculum of on-campus and online courses, clubs, and student organizations, High School students at Colegio Americano de Torreon will have diverse opportunities to explore, grow, and learn including through courses in art, business, computer science, health, language arts, music, physical education, media arts, and others.
 
All of our High School students follow program requirements for both the Secretaria de Educacion Publica (SEP) guidelines, as well as United States' curriculum standards to obtain both, their Bachillerato certificate and their High School diploma.
 
Our academic offering includes:
  • Advanced Placement: These courses offer college credit upon successful completion of a final exam.
  • Bachillerato SEP: This is the main program that offers students validation of coursework for entry into public and private Mexican universities.
  • Virtual High School: Where through a unique network of schools, students, educators, and parents gain access to student-centered online education within a high quality, collaborative learning environment.  
 

Teacher Leaders

Our High School program strives in building community for our students throughout their three year path with academic planning and achievement, social-emotional wellness, and career and college planning. For this we have a well-knit group of teacher leaders divided in two main groups: Grade Team Leaders and Department Heads.
