### Graduation Requirements (6 semesters)

The usual course of study for a Loyola student is Algebra I, Geometry, Algebra II, Pre-Calculus, and Calculus. These courses are taught as college preparatory courses and the pace and levels of difficulty are set accordingly. For students with exceptional background and/or exceptional aptitude in math there are honors and AP options.

Students are required to complete six semesters of mathematics. Prior to enrollment, students will take a placement exam to determine math aptitude, and course assignment. Most students will be enrolled in an Algebra/Geometry hybrid course freshman year. Sophomore year students will complete Algebra II or Pre-Calculus, and junior year students take Pre-Calculus or Calculus. Many seniors decide to enroll in a final year of math where they complete advanced placement courses in calculus, multivariable math, or computer programming/science.
