Calculus as a 9th Grader
So I am currently an ongoing 8th Grader. I am taking an Alg2H and Intro to Trigonometry Course this summer starting July. Later, once I start 8th Grade, I will be taking Alg2H and Pre-Calculus Honors. I would like to know if it would be possible for me to be in Calculus as a 9th Grader. I know very well that I am extremely advanced for my age especially just making the cut off in New Hampshire. I am not entirely sure though whether Calculus would be bearable in 9th Grade as I am applying to many prestigious schools including Phillips Exeter, Phillips Academy, and St. Pauls. Next, if I do happen to be placed in Calculus for Freshman Year of High School, I was wondering what the options for following High School years would be. Any help, advice, or insights would be much appreciated. Thank you.10 replies
