The 9-12 academic program is based upon the graduation requirements adopted by the State of California and also satisfies the UC “a-g” requirements. The minimum graduation requirement is 240 credits (semester periods) which include 32 semester periods of Bible/religion, 40 semester periods of English, 30 semester periods of social studies, 30 semester periods of physical education, 40 semester periods of mathematics, 40 semester periods of science, 30 semester periods of foreign language, and 10 semester periods of fine arts. Students must choose enough classes to complete the required 240 credits.
Students have a limited number of elective opportunities by the large number of required credits as well as the small student population which necessitates a single-section schedule for all grades except the freshmen. Most students take three years of foreign language, which is not a graduation requirement, but is an entrance requirement for most colleges and universities. Most students also take additional courses in mathematics, science, and social studies and repeat fine arts offerings, graduating with an accumulation of credit hours far beyond the required 240. Students are also encouraged to participate in volunteer/service hours which benefit church, school and community at large.
