Language Course Profiles

To graduate from CCA, no world language is required. To apply to most four-year colleges, students must earn a C or higher in two years of the same language other than English minimum (three to four years is recommended).  Students may take as many world languages as their schedule will allow, but prerequisites and department recommendations should be followed.  Middle school course(s) may be used to satisfy college entrance requirements but no high school credit will be granted for course(s) taken during middle schoolIf you completed a language class with at least a C or higher at a SDUHSD middle school, you should be prepared to move on to the next level of the language.  If you completed the class at a school outside of SDUHSD or are unsure of your level of preparation, check with your current language teacher, current counselor or with the World Languages chairperson at CCA.
