Information to Consider When Choosing Your Electives:

Freshman Focus + Health- Freshman Focus is our way of saying: “Welcome to Trabuco!” In this class, you can expect to be introduced to all things high school, and be equipped with the organizational, time-management, and communication skills to help you in this important transition. This course is an ideal way to start high school, as it is coupled with Health: a one-semester graduation requirement. It’s a win-win! 

PE and Athletics- Students have been pre-enrolled in PE for Fall and Spring. Students who plan to try-out for an athletic sport will have their schedules updated upon receipt of the team roster from the athletic director in August or during the sport’s season.

Language other than English - College-bound students are required to take a minimum of two years in the same language, three years are recommended for the UC’s and impacted campuses in the California State University system. Prepared students can begin this requirement Freshman year, but it is not required. For students who could benefit from a year to transition to the expectations of high school, they can begin a language Sophomore year as well. 

Visual and Performing Arts - Students planning to apply to a four-year college or university are required to take 1 year of a Visual/Performing Art (both semesters must be in the same discipline). Courses that meet the UC/CSU VAPA requirement for THHS.

AP Human Geography – This class is the most challenging elective option designed to prepare students for the rigors of AP classes. This is not a requirement for future AP courses. The recommended criteria for this class is concurrent enrollment in English 1 Honors.  


\We look forward to working with you! If you have any questions regarding the Fall 2022 registration process, please feel free to reach out to your student’s Guidance Technician.
