Academic Overview

Students at Waconia High School participate in a 5-period trimester schedule; each class meeting for 70 minutes. Each class can be considered 1 semester credit, as our yearlong classes are condensed into 2 trimesters. Students have an opportunity to earn 15 credits per year and are required to have 55 credits to graduate. Rigorous programs of study include instruction in Advanced Placement classes, & concurrent enrollment through University of MN (College in the Schools) and Southwest MN State University.
