• Course Descriptions

    Course descriptions report information about a high school's classes. They're published both in course catalogs that outline degree or graduation requirements and in course schedules that contain descriptions for all courses offered during a particular semester, quarter or year. 

    Many schools offer this information online as an electronic document or directly through their website, along with or instead of printed catalogs. Course descriptions include information about available courses, such as:

    • Name of the department offering the course.
    • Semesters or quarters offered.
    • Course name and number.
    • The number of credits.
    • Restrictions or prerequisites.
    • A brief summary of the topics covered in the class.
    • Additional costs or fees, if applicable.
    • A-G approved course.

    All courses have been approved by the Board and have been submitted for A-G approval. The listing of courses is an ongoing process; therefore, not all of the courses are listed. Please note that not all of the courses are available at all of the high schools.  Please check with your high school counselor to see if the course you are interested in is offered.
