Even though the regular classes provided at Saxony are challenging as is, the Early College Programs classes that I chose to take took learning to the next level. Though the grading systems seemed to look easier than Saxony’s, you had to work hard to earn your grade. Classes such as Pre Calc-A and B, along with College Writing, provided me with in-depth homework assignments, more demanding tests, and really challenged my abilities as a student.
