Fordham Prep offers an Individualized Honors Program based on the idea that each boy is unique in the gifts that have been bestowed upon him. Fordham Prep offers regular, advanced, honors, and AP level courses. Each boy is invited to create a schedule that challenges and motivates him. Freshman can take up to five honors classes and are invited to do so based on their Fordham Prep Placement Exam scores and other information gathered in the admissions process.The criteria that can lead to an invitation to an honors class are placement test scores, entrance exam scores, 8th grade courses and grades, as well as Regents Exam scores. Our Placement Test is administered in March after Registration Day. It covers reading, English grammar, mathematics, reasoning and other academic skills. This is the last time that placement is based upon testing; after freshman year, each student qualifies for honors and advanced placement courses through his performance in class. In May, incoming freshmen are notified of their courses for the Fall.
*All incoming freshmen at Fordham Prep are eligible for honors classes, whether they are academic scholarship recipients or not.*
