Select students may also qualify for honors and advanced placement courses.
The school also offers abundant extra-curricular activities and student clubs, from Gospel choirs to mock trial teams to the astronomy and outdoor adventure clubs. The OPRF Huskies athletic program sponsors nearly 30 sports programs and 80 different team levels.
