Alternative Education

Home → AcademicsAcademic Programs → Adult School

HUSD offers three main alternative education programs:  

Students who are credit deficient or otherwise unable to attend their "home school" (HHS) must make an appointment to see their Counselor to discuss the appropriate alternative educational setting.  The student's parent/guardian must also be present at this meeting.  Please note that, because these programs are very small, there are usually wait lists.  Prospective students must continue to attend their home school until a space opens up, if at all.

All alternative options require the same subject requirements and the CAHSEE (Exit Exam) but the number of elective and overall credits vary.
