High School Overview
EXCEL ACADEMY HIGH SCHOOL
High School students can choose to follow the UC/CSU A-G track or one of Excel Academy's customized tracks toward college or career. Excel Academy offers a customized curriculum where parents are encouraged and supported in choosing a flexible, personalized learning plan that matches their student's needs and expectations and prepares them for college and beyond. We offer all high school students specialized support from a highly qualified content area specialist in each CORE subject.
The High School Department along with the Teacher of Record will support and guide parents in meeting California State Standards for their respective grade level. Students will have access to multiple curricula options and supplemental resources through the use of Instructional Funds and the myriad content and community provider choices.
Excel Academy offers various programs where students can choose a-g approved courses. A-G is a series of courses that are deemed by the UCOP to be college prep. Students interested in attending a UC/CSU must complete a minimum 15 Excel Academy approved a-g courses (11 courses prior to 12th grade) with a grade of C or better to be eligible for admission to a UC/CSU institution.
The intent of the “a-g” subject requirements is to ensure that students have attained a body of general knowledge that will provide breadth and perspective to new, more advanced study. Please visit the University of California website for more information regarding a-g subject requirements and Excel Academy's approved a-g course list by clicking the below.
Customized College Track
Excel Academy offers a Customized College Track to high school students who wish to apply to a private college, out-of-state institution or a community college. Courses in this track are non a-g approved courses and are meant for high school students who are looking for a more flexible customized learning experience. Through this track students can purchase an array of educational services, courses and materials to satisfy high school requirements while pursuing other interests and extracurricular activities. Students and Teachers of Record will work together to choose the correct content and community provider and curriculum materials that fit the student's learning style and best prepares them for post-secondary experiences.
Excel Academy offers Career Technical Education (CTE) which gives high school students an opportunity to begin preparing early for college and careers. CTE provides students with academic and technical skills, knowledge, and training necessary to succeed in future careers. CTE will prepare students by introducing them to workplace competencies, and make academic content accessible to students by providing it in a hands-on context.
