Academics

Grades and Credit

Brea Canyon High School is operating under a maximum term of accreditation granted by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC), the official accrediting agency for schools in the western United States. All courses and textbooks are aligned with California Common Core State Standards and each student is required to earn 210 credits in all academic and elective areas and complete one year of Algebra, in order to receive a high school diploma for graduation.  The student is in complete control of his or her academic progress.  Each student is expected to earn a minimum number of credits per quarter, depending on the total number of credits still needed for graduation.  Students failing to meet this standard may be placed on an academic contract, and may be subject to additional classes or referred to a different alternative education placement.

Students at Brea Canyon High School receive a final grade of “A,” “B,” “C,” “D” or “F” on the basis of class participation, class work, test scores, class productivity and attendance.  Work must receive a 70% or better in order for the student to receive credits for the assignment. Students who have not met their target credits earned will have a student study team conference scheduled involving teachers, student, parent(s) and administration to discuss educational options. Students may earn additional credits by enrolling in an off campus ROP course and/or work experience.

Each student is in competition only with them-self, not with other students.  At the end of every quarter approximately (9) weeks, grades and credits will be posted on the student transcript and a report card will be mailed home.
