Here in California, most high school kids are getting ready to register for classes. If your child is hoping to attend a UC school in the future, there are specific classes required for UC admission, these are called, "A-G" courses. Keep in mind that when a college says a course is recommened, you should take that to mean, "required". Admissions are competitive, so take all recommended courses! Keep the door open even if you think you might want to start out at a Community College. If you change your mind later, you will still be eligible!
Required "A-G" Courses:
a. History/Social Science – 2 years required
b. English – 4 years required
c. Math – 3 years required, 4 years recommended
d. Lab Science – 2 years required, 3 years recommended
e. Foreign Language – 2 years required, 3 years recommended
f. Visual and Performing Arts – 1 year required
g. College Prep Electives – 1 year required
