I am a junior at Bishop O'Dowd High School. My main academic goal has always been to challenge myself. Each year I have taken the most challenging courses available, while still maintaining a 4.0 unweighted GPA. This year I am tackling AP Calculus BC, AP Chemistry, AP Biology, AP English Language and Composition, Honors Spanish 3, and US History. For the past three years, I have taken classes over the summer. These include an introduction to high school English and Geometry, Accelerated Algebra 2, and Christian Morality Online. These last two classes have allowed me to complete credits that I would otherwise be required to complete during the school year, allowing me to take more advanced courses during the semester.
