Saint Genevieve High School provides for the needs of all students to become college-bound. Our curriculum meets all state, archdiocesan, and college requirements. Please note the requirements for graduation for Saint Genevieve High School and for entrance into the University of California and California State University systems are parallel. It is important that parents and students understand that occasional scheduling conflicts and insufficient enrollment may necessitate a change in student schedules. For this reason, students may be asked to choose alternate classes when making choices. Students requesting a program change must complete the form obtained from their appropriate academic counselor. All changes must first be approved by the grade level counselor and then the administration. Students and/or parents may not request a schedule to accommodate their choice of teacher.
In order to ensure a logical and beneficial sequence of classes, academic counseling is provided and consultation with parents and teachers will occur. No program changes will be made without the approval and consultation of the parents, grade level counselor, teacher and Administration.
Saint John reminds us: "When he comes, the Spirit of truth, he will guide you to all truth. He will not speak on his own, but he will speak what he hears, and will declare to you the things that are coming" (Jn 16:13).
Controversial issues are topics of a religious, moral, social, or political nature where there are differing opinions among recognized theologians, moralists, and social scientists. Teachers, catechists, and staff members must share with the pastor/principal/director of religious education any topics that may arise either inside or outside the classroom that may be controversial regarding Church teachings and practice. Teachers and staff members must always be conscientious about learning what the Church teaches before they presume to present or discuss the position of the Church on controversial issues. Presentations and discussions on such matters are to be conducted in harmony with the teachings of the Church in a spirit of ecclesial unity.
