Honors at Soquel High School:
A culture and community of learning

Honors classes offer a unique opportunity for academically motivated students to experience many of the benefits of a small college preparatory high school while still taking advantage of all that a large public school has to offer.

Honors English and Honors World History are enriched curricula of English and Social Studies. Although the programs emphasize college preparatory skills, they also encourage creativity and enrichment. Students attend field trips, experience a variety of guest speakers; and present creative, unique individual and group projects. Honors classes host special events outside of school to encourage a culture and community of learning. 

Parent involvement is encouraged and vital. Regular parent meetings are scheduled, as parents take on critical roles in the many special events sponsored by the Academy. Meetings also allow parents to be apprised of their students' activities, progress, and curriculum.
