High School begins in 9th grade and ends in the 12th grade, according to the North American education system. The course program reflects what Sant’Anna considers essential to prepare committed, critical, respectful, and well-rounded students ready to continue their studies in the best universities in Brazil and abroad.

The academic curriculum is demanding, due to aligned Brazilian and international requirements for graduation, and students participate in courses taught in English and Portuguese. High School has adopted the BYOD program(bring your own device), in which all students must bring their laptops for academic activities proposed by teachers. Electives help students to complete their well-rounded education.

To assist students with their adaptation, during 9th grade students participate in a variety of transition activities. From 10th grade onwards, the preliminary examination of the SAT (PSAT) and other mock university entrance exams are part of the academic program. Students in all grades can participate in extracurricular activities such as: sports, National Honor Society, Student Council, MUN (Model of United Nations), which help them in the development of leadership skills. In addition, students are encouraged and supported by a teaching team which aims the success of students first.
