A-G College Admissions Requirements


Our priority as a school community is to ensure our students are academically, socially, and emotionally prepared for college. Health Professions courses align with what are commonly known as the “A-G” requirements. A-G courses are those that the University of California (UC) and California State University (CSU) require entering freshmen to have completed in high school. Completing these college-prep courses helps our students earn admission into both public and private universities.

“A” — History/Social Science (2 years)
