University of California A - G Approvals

Lynwood Unified School District's mission is to prepare every child (student) for college and career by providing them with a rigorous and engaging instructional program, with the strong belief that every child (student) deserves the chance to succeed.

In keeping with our district's mission of college readiness, many of Lynwood Community Adult School's high school courses are University of California A - G Approved and more are being added each year.

The Subject Requirement, more commonly referred to as the "a-g" subject requirements, is one of three requirements needed to enter UC as a freshman. Specifically, students must complete a pattern of 15 college-preparatory courses drawn from the areas of history/social science, English, math, lab science, a language other than English, the visual and performing arts and the college-preparatory elective. We label each subject area or requirement with a letter to easily identify the different course requirements.
