8th Grade Honors Algebra I

Saint Joseph Academy is pleased to offer the Honors Algebra I course for girls who will be in the 8th grade during the 2022-2023 school year. The course is intended to accelerate eighth grade students who are talented in mathematics so they have the opportunity to take five full years of mathematics in high school. This online course from Imagine Edgenuity, overseen by a licensed Saint Joseph Academy mathematics teacher, will include face-to-face classroom time on Tuesdays and Thursday, 7-7:45 a.m. during the school year at Saint Joseph Academy, in addition to the online work.

The tuition charge is $325 plus a $25 non-refundable registration fee deposit, for a total of $350. The tuition must be paid in full by Friday, August 26, 2022.

Please note: If a student withdraws from the class between payment of tuition and September 30, 2022, fifty percent of the tuition will be refunded. If a student withdraws from the class after September 30, 2022, no tuition payment will be refunded. If, however, for any reason, the course is canceled by Saint Joseph Academy, the registration fee deposit will be refunded.

Purpose: This course is being offered to girls who will be enrolled as eighth grade students in elementary schools during the 2022-2023 school year. Students will be experiencing a high school level class for the 2022-2023 academic year in Honors Algebra I, and upon successful completion, will receive one high school credit in mathematics which should transfer to any high school. The course is intended to accelerate eighth grade students who are talented in mathematics so that they have the opportunity to take five full years of mathematics in high school.

Qualifications: Since the Honors Algebra I course is an honors high school course, we recommend that parents and students consider carefully the following points. The course is designed for:
  • Students who have maintained an A or high B in grade school math
  • Students who achieved at least 85th percentile in math on standardized tests
  • Students who are highly motivated
  • Students who have the ability to work independently using an online math program
  • Students who have excellent attendance records
Once in the class, a student in the Honors Algebra I course should maintain an A or B grade point average.

Credit: Because the course complies with section 3313.603G of the Ohio Revised Code, we are able to award high school credit to those students who successfully complete the course. This credit should be accepted by any high school and should enable the student to begin her second year of high school mathematics as a ninth grader. However, the decision to grant high school credit for the class from schools other than Saint Joseph Academy will depend on the policies of those schools.  In addition, at the end of the course, all students are required to take the Ohio Department of Education Algebra I state test at Saint Joseph Academy.

When & Where: Instruction will take place both in person and through a program from Imagine Edgenuity, and will be overseen by a licensed Saint Joseph Academy mathematics teacher. Face-to-face classroom time will be on Tuesdays and Thursdays, 7-7:45 a.m. during the school year at Saint Joseph Academy. The start date, calendar, and class details will be sent to registered students during the summer. Students will be expected to provide their own transportation. They will also need a TI 84 Plus CE graphing calculator for the class.  There is both a minimum and a maximum class size requirement. Applications will be accepted on a first-come-first-served basis.
