To graduate from CCA, all students must earn a passing grade in 30 credits of math and pass Algebra I.* [*Starting with the Class of 2018, students must pass Integrated Math 1 or Algebra or a higher math course, to fulfill the California state requirement.] Algebra 1 or Integrated Math 1 or higher math course taken in middle school will satisfy the requirement but no high school credit will be granted for courses taken at the middle school.
To apply to most four-year colleges, students must earn a "C" or higher in at least Algebra I, Geometry, and Algebra II or Integrated Math 1, Integrated Math 2 and Integrated Math 3 and an additional math may be recommended or required. Middle school course(s) may be used to satisfy college entrance requirements. Students may take as many math courses as their schedule will allow, but prerequisites and department recommendations should be followed.
