Earn college credits by attending CAL.
Last year students at the Center for Advanced Learning earned a total of 4,548 college credits. That's a lot of extra credit for spending half the day learning about their chosen career program. All classes at CAL satisfy elective and/or core classes for your diploma. Academically, CAL candidates are most successful when two years of Math, Science, and English are completed by the end of Sophomore year. See your counseling department for more information regarding credit recovery and other options for CAL admission.
For Health Science candidates, two years of Science credits are required.
