Welcome to the 2021-2022 school year! We are busy preparing for a strong start of our 19th year as an independent charter school. Please read the following information carefully as we get ready for the first day of school on August 12, 2021. All new and returning students in grades 10, 11, and 12 must attend a mandatory grade level summer registration appointment in order to receive classes/class schedule and photo identification card, and to complete a baseline COVID-19 test.
Granada Hills Charter (GHC) is consistently ranked as one of the best schools in California.
Students are challenged as individuals and as leaders, and will graduate a different person than when they entered high school. Whether it’s the collaborative experience of our academic teams, the bonds forged in myriad clubs and athletics, or the opportunity to stand up in front of their peers and speak, GHC transforms students into life-long learners and productive, responsible global citizens encouraged to take risks, learn from failure, and meet the goals they set.
Grades 9-12 At A Glance
All programs offer full access to honors courses, AP courses, IB courses, and preparation for the International Baccalaureate Diploma Program and AP Capstone in grades 11 and 12. All courses in every program are accredited by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges and are transferable to schools throughout the United States. Students who graduate from Granada Hills Charter (GHC) and earn a C or better in the required courses will meet the UC/CSU “A-G” subject area requirements and the NCAA course requirements unless otherwise noted in their Individualized Education Plan.

Extracurricular and co-curricular activities are an integral part of a student's high school experience; memories will be made that will last a lifetime. Students who participate in extracurricular activities will likely see an improvement in their academic and life skills, including discipline, goal-setting, teamwork, accountability, and responsibility. They will also find themselves better prepared for post-secondary education. Ultimately, students may even discover that the lessons they learn outside the classroom, in athletics or clubs, help them cope with future challenges in the workplace. We strongly encourage every student at Granada Hills Charter (GHC) to take advantage of the activities that are offered. We are confident that each and every student will be able to find at least one activity that they are interested in, and we are committed to providing a wide variety of activities as an extension of the classroom.
