Our intention is that all graduates will have met the admission requirements for the Univerisity of California, known as the "a-g" requirements. Of our graduates to date, 94% met the "a-g" requirements, vs. only 43% of public high school graduates statewide. Specific college acceptances are listed on the "For Colleges" section of our website.
