Outside of MVHS: Remediation with Charter and Online Schools


These schools are not affiliated with Vista Unified.  Options shown are without implied or intended endorsement.  All aspects of involvement (scheduling, communications, fees) along with verifying course approval ('a-g', college, NCAA, etc) are the responsibility of the student and their family.  You must have classes pre-approved using the 'VUSD Off Campus Course Approval' form.  Students should discuss plans with their assigned counselor prior to enrollment.

Remediation with Community College


High school students may consider taking community college courses for high school credit (with some classes counting as college prep). However, you must have classes pre-approved using the VUSD Off Campus Course Approval Form. Be aware that there will be a cost to take the class. In addition to the VUSD paperwork, each college has its own registration process, forms, and assessment tests to be allowed to enroll. Course opportunities may be limited. If considering Community College, please first contact the college for their enrollment requirements and course options:
