Students who attend BASIS Peoria are committed to attaining the highest level of academic and intellectual achievement. To meet the needs of such an able and motivated student body, BASIS charter schools recruit highly talented expert teachers who create an exceptional environment for students with diverse backgrounds and interests. The BASIS Peoria primary school program focuses on building organizational and study skills and creating the deep knowledge base necessary for students to tackle a demanding AP-based upper school curriculum. It also combines opportunities to pursue academic excellence as we help our students become well-rounded individuals. In primary school, students are introduced to courses such as Latin, Physics, Chemistry, and Biology as standalone classes and an excellent arts and music program complements our core classes.
A rigorous liberal-arts curriculum prepares our upper school students for admission into the nation’s top colleges and universities. BASIS Peoria students are eligible to begin taking Advanced Placement® courses as early as 8th grade and will take, at a minimum, eight AP courses and six AP® exams by the end of their junior year.
