The Gravitas curriculum is The Stony Brook School curriculum, built for online. As a Gravitas student, you will take three courses at a time, allowing you to dive deeply into what you are learning instead of juggling all your courses at once. You can attend live online class at times that fit your schedule and complete coursework when it’s most convenient for you.

You will take math and world language courses over the course of the academic year and intensive courses in seven-week blocks, one at a time. Your intensive courses will take 3-5 hours per day, with about 90 minutes devoted to live instruction and discussion with your classmates.
