Orange County high school students looking to take a class in advance — or repeat a course — will once again have the option to do so through Pacific Coast High School’s online program.

The next session runs July 1 through Aug. 10, though students are encouraged to submit their registration materials starting April 1.

“Through on-campus coursework, electives and online offerings, we provide a number of opportunities for students to get ahead or get back on track,” Principal Machele Kilgore said. “While some may advertise a similar program, PCHS courses have the distinction of being approved by both the University of California and the NCAA, meaning we’re a great resource for college-bound students as well as athletes.”

Based in Tustin, Pacific Coast High School is accredited by the Western Association of Schools and features the option to complete most courses independently. We’re told many of its classes are first-come, first-served and can fill up quickly, so it’s best to get your registration materials in as soon as possible.
