Each high school has a curriculum guide available that provides details on course offerings.

 

While these requirements will meet District graduation standards, Capistrano Unified strongly encourages all students to pursue a schedule of academic courses that meets the “a-g” course admissions requirements for the University of California and California State University systems.

 

Each District high school curriculum guide as well as the “College and Career Planning Guide” have details of the “a-g” requirements.
