Sample high school schedule (grades 10–12)

All our classes are WASC accredited. Any class in the MSS schedule can be replaced with a junior (community) college class. A 3-unit college class is equal to a 5-unit high school class; students need 150 high school units to graduate from high school, so a combination of junior college and MSS classes combine to create a high school transcript.

Most junior-college classes transfer to four-year colleges and universities, so students can earn college credit during high school when concurrently enrolled in MSS and a local junior college.
