I think you should talk to the admissions office instead of random students and graduates. Did you get a debrief last year on why you did not get accepted? Don't think you got good advice on taking algebra and trig in lieu of calculus.

do you think pre-calc would be alright? because algebra and trig are prereq's for pre calc at my college..it even says here on the website, "A solid foundation in algebra is more valuable than exposure to calculus." (http://academyadmissions.com/admissions/selection/scoring.php)

but i will consider calc..thanks

By being a repeat, you have placed yourself in a different category than the candidate coming directly out of high school. You applied last year. They turned you down. Something was wrong. If you did not get a debrief and find out, assume everything. Probably academics is a good assumption. To walk across the threshold on I-Day, they want to be pretty darned sure you can do Calculus. You stated that you had looked at the prep school curriculum. Does it stress algebra and trig? Most repeats are a little behind the power curve when it comes to academics so by insisting on prep schools and repeats having calc, it is a slight insurance policy.

And darn it, listen to what I told you above. Don't listen to me and jamz. Pick up the phone and call Admissions and talk to your rep directly. You, by being a repeat, are in a more unique situation. You need to find out what works for you specifically.
