“I find the great thing in this world is not so much where we stand, as in what direction we are moving.” – Henry Howard Holmes

The tables below provide information on the courses offered at Channel Islands High School this year. Courses are listed under the Subject under which they fall for the purposes of OUHSD graduation requirements. Some courses do not align with the same Subject for UC A-G purposes. This information is presented with the course name, if applicable. 

A-G fulfillment requires one year of a college-preparatory elective. This can be satisfied with courses from the other categories taken in excess of requirements for that category (e.g. a  fourth year of approved Mathematics courses will count as a year of electives). OUHSD graduation requirements require twelve semesters of courses that do not satisfy requirements for other categories. Foster Youth/Homeless students are exempted from this elective requirement.
