Dear Bobcat Nation,
It is hard to believe, but our trimester half-way point is this Friday, October 11. Teachers will use next week to finalize all grading and submit the necessary information for progress reports to be completed and then distributed during 5th period on Friday, October 18.
A theme that parents and students alike will be seeing in the upcoming weeks are the “a-g” course requirements. In short, these courses are prerequisites for admission to University of California and California State Universities AND, beginning with our current freshman class, they are also a requirement to graduate from a Carlsbad Unified School District high school.
Read additional information about the “a-g” courses below.

College & Career: CUSD High School Gradution Requirements / A-G Courses
Students need to earn trimester grades of “C” or better in a pattern of high school courses commonly referred to as the “a-g requirements” to be considered for admission to the University of California (UC) and California State University (CSU) systems.
Specifically, students must complete 15 college preparatory courses drawn from the disciplines of history/social science, English, mathematics, science, world language, and visual and performing arts. At Sage Creek, 9th grade courses in these subject areas help students begin to meet the a-g requirements. Note that, beginning with this freshman class, this pattern of study also is required to satisfy CUSD graduation requirements and prepares students for admission to the vast majority of colleges and universities across the nation.
Click on the link below to compare the a-g requirements for the UC’s and the CSU’s.
It is the intent of the Sage Creek teacher team to maximize the instructional minutes allotted for each period of instruction. We will work together to ensure that students are in their designated classrooms on time and ready to learn before the tardy bell rings. Below is the Sage Creek High School tardy policy:
Campus Expectations: Tardy Policy
Tardy Policy (by period per Trimester)
