To make sure that you will always have an open period in your schedule, you can take a class online through the CUSD Cal Prep Academy. The Academy offers a wide variety of different online courses including Health, foreign language, and even some AP courses.

Students must get approval from their Academic Advisor PRIOR to enrolling in a Cal Prep course. Be sure to let your Academic Advisor know that you are interested in taking the Cal Prep course to allow you to fit a music class into your schedule at Tesoro.

Music does more than just make sounds, it changes the way we think and act. The skills your child will learn in music will help them be successful on the stage, in the classroom, and for the rest of their lives.
