Four Year Plan

FOUR YEAR PLAN BY STRAND

The Four Year Plan is subject to change depending on the student’s credits earned and extracurricular activities. Courses listed in bold on the Four Year Plan are part of one of three distinctive strands: Audio/Video Production, Animation, and Broadcast Journalism.

Typically, both the Business and Industry and Multi-disciplinary Studies diploma endorsements are obtained through the CAHS curriculum. However, other endorsements may be earned based on elective choices.

In addition, CAHS students are able to take advantage of any extracurricular activity at Taft High School, such as athletics, spirit, band, and ROTC.
