Academic Programs


IRCHS offers four levels of classes designed to challenge students: Regular, Honors, Dual-Enrollment (DE), and Advanced Placement (AP).

Dual Enrollment at IRSC

Most students are encouraged to enroll in at least one or two dual-enrollment classes at Indian River State College (IRSC). Students have the opportunity to earn an A.A. Degree, an A.A.S. Degree or work toward completion of a certificate from IRSC.


Specialized Programs

IRCHS offers two specialized programs: a Visual and Performing Arts Program and a Golf Program, in addition to participation in the IRCHS Core Academic Program. Visual and Performing Arts program provides students with a learning environment conducive to excelling in the fine arts. Five artistic disciplines are offered: dance, theatre, music-vocal, music- instrumental, and visual arts. Each course of study exceeds the basic Florida High School graduation requirements.
