General Scheduling Information:
PUSD Program Guide 2019-2020: The purpose of this guide is to assist students and parents in selecting appropriate classes, planning a successful high school experience and preparing for a challenging future. This guide describes the programs at Amador Valley, Foothill, and Village high schools.
Most students take the SAT or ACT towards the end of their junior year. Students can choose either test to take. Colleges have no preference as to which score they get.

Princeton Review ---------->
While PUSD does not recommend outside courses, if you choose to purchase one, it is important to verify that the non-PUSD course is approved by UC/CSU. Please review this link for information on how to research and verify non-PUSD courses.
Message regarding Dublin Partnerships in Education Summer Enrichment Academy
Student Enrollment for Summer 2018
As of December 2017, Pleasanton Unified School District students (PUSD) need to be aware that if they choose to enroll in Dublin Partnerships in Education Summer Enrichment Academy (DPIE SEA), these courses will not count towards PUSD graduation requirements and will not be added to their PUSD transcript.
PUSD does not accept coursework from WASC accredited institutions that are classified as supplementary educational programs/centers. The reasons why we do not accept these courses include the following:
- Transcripts are not provided
- The programs do not meet the A-G program status for the UC/CSU systems
Please contact your child’s counselor if you have questions and/or need additional information.
Community College Concurrent Enrollment
Community College Concurrent Enrollment is a possibility for students who want to: explore courses that are not offered at Amador Valley High School.
Visit each community college website for high school student enrollment forms and course availability for the term in which you are applying. Pay attention to deadlines and discuss potential course choices with your counselor. You may apply to several community colleges for the same subject, since high school students often receive the last priority in registering for college classes. There are many community college courses that AVHS students can take.
