College Entrance Requirements

Preparation for College

Our graduation requirements are aligned with the minimum course requirements for most four-year colleges. 学生 are kept on-track with a demanding core course curriculum.  Colleges pay close attention to the courses students select and complete in high school and along with GPA, the rigor of a student’s course curriculum are the two most important factors in the admission review.  We want our students to have success in their admission process, but more importantly we want to set students up for success in their college courses.  在适当的时候, students should challenge themselves to take courses that exceed the minimum requirements.

The University of California and the Cal State University require a minimum 15-unit pattern of courses for admission as a first-time freshman referred to as the UC/CSU A-G course requirements. Each unit is equal to a year of study in a subject area. A grade of C- or better is required for each course you use to meet any subject requirement.
