College & Career Ready

Los Angeles Unified School District has set its graduation requirements to include the “A-G” course sequence, which aligns with the California State Universities and the University of California system. There are also requirements from the California Department of Education and non-credit bearing requirements.
In addition to earning a high school diploma, Kennedy students can earn a Career & Technical Education (CTE) certificate. CTE programs provide students and adults with the academic and technical skills, knowledge and training necessary to succeed in future careers and develop skills they will use throughout their careers.
