The Road to Success

It is never too early to start thinking about how the next 4 years will impact life after high school. In the freshman year, it is important to start planning out your high school experience, as well as, thinking about what types of colleges and careers might interest you and seeking out opportunities to learn and grow!

What are the A-G Requirements?

In California, the A-G system guides families to understand what classes students should take to be ready for a 4-year institution. Students must earn a "C" or better for a course to count as A-G. To learn more about A-G visit the University of California A-G Guide.

Using Naviance to Prepare

New Tech High uses the college and career readiness tool Naviance to help students think about life after high school. Through advisory, students complete modules and reflection activities to build a better understanding of what colleges and careers might be the best fit for them. Students have access to Naviance 24/7 and can access it through the Family Connection website linked below.

Napa Valley College Courses

We generally don't recommend students to think about taking Napa Valley College courses until at least Spring of their Sophomore year. New Tech High students are required to complete at least 12 units (20 high school credits) of UC transferable college courses. Here are some helpful tips when thinking about what courses might be appropriate:



  • What courses might be good entry points to the college experience?
  • What other activities do I have going on that might be affected by college classes?
  • Do I know the difference between high school classes and college classes?
