UC/CSU A-G requirements - All students have access to a rigorous curriculum that meets both UC/CSU A-G subject requirements in addition to high school graduation requirements.
Pierce College Classes - NAHS students have the ability to take college classes at NAHS and earn both college units and high school credits. Even better, tuition fees are waived! Multiple Pierce college courses are offered after-school on the NAHS campus each semester.
Advanced Placement Courses- AP courses are typically taken by students in grades 10-12. These courses allow motivated high school students an opportunity to take college-level courses in a high school setting. Students who participate in AP courses not only gain college-level skills, but in many cases they also earn college credit while they are still in high school.
Master Schedule- The Master Schedule lists every class offered at Northridge Academy for the current term. The Fall 2010 Master Schedule is currently available.
