Graduation/College Requirements

Our graduation requirements either match or exceed the University of California entrance requirements in all subject areas. As a result, you will see high levels of college acceptance from our graduates. Our students regularly go above and beyond what is required and add on electives in dynamic areas like engineering, virtual enterprise and design thinking.
