Our Academic Goal 

Sequoia High School has a college going culture and no matter where students start as 9th graders; we plan to help students become eligible to apply to a 4-year college upon graduation and help them explore their options. We meet with all students during the spring semester for the next school year’s course selection in a classroom setting, followed by a short individual appointment.

We encourage students and families to look over Sequoia's Program Planning Handbook for help with planning courses for following years and course descriptions.
Planning with Students
Counselors meet with students at every grade level in the fall and in the spring. Below are the presentations given to every student followed by individual appointments in the spring as well.
