Academic – covers the grade Level Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS) for the subject and grade level

Pre-Advanced Placement (Pre AP) – covers the TEKS and also allows students to work at grade level with more depth and complexity within the course content

Advanced Math – students work above grade level and cover TEKS for two grade levels in the course – this leads to Algebra for high school credit in 8th Grade.

Advanced Science – students work above grade level and cover TEKS for two grade levels in the course – this leads to Integrated Physics and Chemistry (IPC) for high school credit in 8th Grade for Maverick Green STEM Academy students.
