duPont Manual and the Youth Performing Art School has an excellent education program taught by a talented and dedicated faculty. Our school is committed to providing each student with an education in which rigor and relevance is the norm, creative thinking is encouraged, and ideas are critically analyzed and evaluated. High school is a special time. It is a time of academic and personal challenge as well as a time to make important decisions about future plans. One of our goals at Manual/YPAS is to serve and challenge all of our students.
Manual/YPAS students benefit from the following:
Each unique magnet offers a wide range of academic classes, including the largest number of advanced placement courses offered in the state, five foreign languages, and a variety of college preparatory electives.
College enrollment during the day is possible for upperclassman through the University of Louisville. In addition, students can take advantage of numerous dual credit offerings available through local universities and colleges.
Manual/YPAS optimizes instructional time by following the "A/B" block schedule. This schedule offers four courses on "Red Day" and four courses on "White Day" with classes meeting for 90 minutes. This allows instructors to delve further into material than the normal 55-minute block.
