3 Hungers 1.What is my purpose? 2.What is true? 3.What difference do I make? Only 1 in 5 people ages 12-22 have a clear vision of where they want to go in life and why.
Class of 2017 Where is God calling you? What excites you? What interests you? What experiences have you had that felt fulfilling? Does someone you know have a job or career that intrigues you? What do you like to do in your spare time? Can you envision a job related to your hobbies or interests? Do you prefer working with people, things, tools, or ideas best?
High School Counts!! Courses help you explore, identify and cultivate your interests and abilities. Courses can fulfill graduation requirements, elective credits and college entrance requirements. Each semester grade gives you units of credit toward graduation if you pass. D grades pass BUT should be repeated if you want to go to college
Does Every Year Count? YES!!!! ALL GRADES COUNT UC/CSU uses gpa from grades 10-12 when you apply BUT 9 th graders take courses in A- G pattern and must have C or better grades. AND Colleges ask for complete 4 year transcripts for final acceptance Other colleges look at the TOTAL gpa from grades 9-12 (most OC students go to private colleges) YES, IT ALL COUNTS!!
Graduation Units of Credit Required Social Studies: 40 English: 40 Math: 30 Science: 20 Fine Arts: 10 Computer App: 5 Voc Art: 5 PE/Health: 20 Religion: 20 Elective: 45 Total: 235 (taking 7 classes each semester = 280)
A-G Pattern – what is it? Calif. public universities have standardized their entrance requirements, and call them the A-G Pattern Entrance requirements are generally the same for ALL colleges but it is wise to check private and out-of-state colleges requirements as they may differ from UC/CSU OCHS follows the A-G because it is standardized, not because we are recommending UC/CSU
