Degrees and Certifications:

Welcome to the English Department

The Radnor High School English curriculum consists of full-year grade-level courses for freshmen, sophomores, juniors, and seniors. In addition to courses carrying “English” credit, the English department offers students opportunities to take courses carrying “Elective” or “Humanities” credit.

Requirements for all students: Students must take one credit in English each year; all students are required to take the appropriate grade-level course; English department members will assist students in choosing courses that match their abilities; students who are English Language Learners may take English for English Language Learners instead of one of the above courses for their English credit.
