In CDS High School, each class is 75 minutes long for all grades. There are 10 minute breaks between classes for High School. High School students may utilize the combined Lab and Lunch time of 70 minutes for advisement and/or eating. Time will be allotted for 'Lab' purposes. 'Lab' gives students the opportunity for individual consultation with teachers or for small group interaction with peers as they pursue and extend the study prescribed in the Assignment. Lab also enables students to personalize their learning experience. The Assignment structures the classroom experience. Individual Assignments generally take four to six weeks to complete and serve as guides to student learning. Often, Assignments offer opportunities for students to pursue a topic in a unique way and to demonstrate their learning in a variety of forms. Ideally, an Assignment is a starting point for learning and, through Lab, students may individualize and extend their learning. The one-to-one or small group format of Lab fosters close relationships between students and teachers.

Every High school student should choose 1 activity during Extra-curricular Activities time.

If students wish to receive academic accreditation from the Korean government to enroll in Korean university, students must take at least 4 classes per week in two subjects: Korean Language and Social Studies including Korean History.
