• At I.M. Terrell apprentices choose a major, otherwise known as a Program of Choice. Future apprentices must apply through the GSPOC online application. Students may apply to the STEM Academy or the VPA Academy. Within STEM a student will decide if they want to focus on a engineering pathway or a computer science pathway and have opportunities to take electives in Robotics. Within the VPA Academy, a student may choose Art, Band, Choir, Dane Orchestra, Piano or Theater as their major. Those who apply to one of the VPA Programs must also audition. All classes except for Health, PE and Spanish 1 are graded on the 4.5 weighted scale or above. Every student will be in the Humanities Cowan Academy for their ELA and Social Studies credits.
