WSCA Curriculum Overview

A Rigorous and Balanced Program That Matters
Western Sierra Collegiate Academy builds from the nationally recognized Core Knowledge curriculum implemented in our elementary schools to establish an enhanced curriculum for 7th and 8th grade. Strong in depth and rigor, it provides a solid foundation for success in the college preparatory coursework for grades 9-12.

All students in grades 9-12 will be enrolled in the coursework required for entrance to the University of California. It is the expectation that all students will take Advanced Placement (AP) coursework beginning in 10th grade and continuing on through their senior year. A student can take from four to eleven AP courses while a student here. You may visit Western Sierra Collegiate Academy's UC 'a-g' Course List at UC/CSU approved course list
