High School Pathways and Academies

District Program

Our students dream about their futures. They want to be engineers and nurses and chefs and video game designers and senators. They want to go to college. They want successful careers and lives filled with passion and purpose.

At SCUSD we are committed to helping all of our students achieve their dreams. Every school is focused on preparing students for college and careers through rigorous course work, positive relationships with caring adults and meaningful connections to the world at large.

This work becomes more focused in our high schools, launching pads to life after graduation. Because our students have varied dreams, SCUSD offers a variety of high schools and programs and courses within our high schools to appeal to a variety of learners.

So the question is: How can we help your child achieve his or her dreams? As Dr. Seuss said, “Will you succeed? Yes, you will indeed. (98¾% guaranteed.)”
