BayTech High School Requirements

Academic Program

Bay Area Technology School is a college preparatory school and aims to improve student performance in reading, writing, and math, reduce dropout rates, achieve high student attendance rates, and increase the number of students who pursue careers in STEM areas. All students follow a curriculum that fulfills the University of California (UC) A-G course requirements. BayTech’s graduation requirements exceed the A through G course requirements in some aspects. For example, BayTech requires three years of social sciences, three years of science, one year of technology course and forty hours of community service.

Bay Area Technology School’s graduation requirements exceed the A-G course requirements of the University of California (UC) and California State University (CSU) systems. BayTech believes these increased requirements prepare our students for competitive universities and equip them with skills needed to be successful at post-secondary education.
