    A-G Coursework in High School for College
    The UC and CSU schools require a 15-unit pattern of high school courses for admission as a college freshman. Each unit is equal to a year of study in a subject area. A grade of C or higher is required for each high school course you use to meet the subject requirements. It is important to prepare for these courses while in middle school.

    Charter Schools
    The Los Angeles Unified School District views charter schools as part of the District's family and as an asset from which we can learn. Therefore, the Los Angeles Unified School District will encourage and nurture the development and continuation of charter schools that are accountable for improved student achievement.
     
    Charter schools represent an opportunity to examine practices and develop teaching stratagies that can help solve the many challenges facing schools in the Los Angeles Unified School District and the greater educational community.
     
    Check the LAUSD eChoices website for Charter School information. Charter schools typically have specific application deadlines and enrollment procedures. (i.e. Palisades Charter High School) Be sure to apply early.
