    I attend a private school and it is required that everybody takes 4 years of religion. As weird as this sounds, religion is probably my hardest class (more than Honors algebra 2, Honors English 2 and honors French 3) for some reason, I guess I'm just not too great at religion. Anyways, that class is bringing my GPA way down. Will that class be looked at by the academy, or will my school even put it in my transcripts? I dont think anybody would know if my specific school will or not, but I am wondering of anybody has had expirence with this. Thanks

    My private school requires 4 years of religion as well. I don't think it will have too much of an effect because colleges look mostly at the core classes(math, science, foreign language, english, and history).

    DS attended a private Christian school from K3 until his senior year this year. He had religion classes every year he has gone to school. The fact that you take religion classes probably does not matter one way or the other. However, you should still strive to do achieve the highest grade possible. As noted above, I suspect the selection committee looks at the math/science/English grades with a bit more interest than your religion grades. That said, work, work, work to get the best grades you can in any class you take in school; they do all matter in one way or another.

    Good luck.
