In California, all high school students must pass a test to earn a high school diploma. The test is called the CAHSEE.

Students first take this test in grade ten. If they do not pass the test, or a single section, in grade ten, they have more chances to take the test,, or the one section yet passed. In grade eleven, they can take the test two times. In grade twelve, they have up to five times to take the test.

* If you are enrolled at Cabrillo and have classes on T/W mornings, please alert your professors NOW and advise them that you will miss their class(s) on those days. You are not to be penalized for missing class IF you tell them ahead of time!
