Course Selection

Course Selection

The Course Catalog is published to assist parents and their high school students in educational planning and course selection. Guidance is given for course selection, grading interpretation, meeting college admission requirements, and for completing graduation requirements. Special education is described. Schooling alternatives are listed. Guidance services are outlined. The whole purpose of the Course Catalog/Program Planning Handbook is to offer a single source of information about each high school so that families can make informed choices.
All students are also asked to use the Weekly Class Homework Averages form and Time Management Worksheet to gain a better understanding of the workload specific to their class schedule for the coming year. Please contact your Guidance Counselor for any questions regarding scheduling.

Summer Course Acknowledgment
Parents and students should be aware that SUHSD program sequences were designed to provide students with the necessary knowledge and skills to meet A-G requirements.  While the SUHSD will accept the acceleration of students through a WASC-accredited, UC-approved online or summer program, not all summer or online courses are similar.  SUHSD students who take classes during the school year receive 139 hours of classroom instruction and do an average of 30 min. of homework for each hour of instruction (208.5 hrs).  Because some online and summer courses offer much less instructional time and lack the advantage of a classroom instructor, students participating in abbreviated programs will be at a disadvantage when proceeding through a high school pathway.  Additionally, families should note that CHS will not enroll students in an AP class if they have taken the same course at the college or community college level since it is recognized as repeating the course.
