  • SFPA students take most of their classes at SFPA, but additionally they can enroll in the City College of San Francisco (CCSF) as part of the dual/concurrent program.
  • One semester at CCSF is accepted as one year at SFPA and simultaneously counts toward SFPA’s high school graduation requirements.
  • GPA: Only grades received for SFPA classes are used to calculate a student’s GPA at SFPA. College credits count toward graduation but are not part of a student’s GPA calculation.
  • Students must complete a minimum requirement of 59 units of academic credit in order to graduate from SFPA. In addition to the 54 units above, students must complete Physical Education (4 units), a Capstone project (1 unit) and a total of 90 hours of Community Engagement.
