Freshman Seminar acceptance letters have been emailed to all students. 

Course Description

Beginning with the Class of 2022, all LVUSD Graduates must complete a ten credit course in Freshman Seminar. While the course is best experienced over the academic calendar year, we understand that there are circumstances where it is in the best interest of the student to complete the course over the summer. Note that we will only approve Freshman Seminar for students who can't fit the course into their six-period Freshman schedule. Space is limited in our free summer offering, and if interest exceeds space available, we will use a lottery system for the class. All students enrolled in the class will be taught by an LVUSD instructor. 

This course provides a survey of various disciplines through the context of supporting the transition from middle-to-high school. It includes units of study including: mental and emotional health, family health and relationships, personal health including diseases and disorders, use and misuse of substances, ethical decision making, accident prevention and emergency health services, community health, and global/environmental exposure to culture, religion and other health related issues. It also includes life/ study skills essential to a successful future including: organization and time management, stress management, financial literacy, school culture/getting involved, future college/career pathways and goal setting strategies. There are four main units throughout the course aligned to Health Science, Psychology, Leadership Development, and Speech/Debate.

Freshman Seminar will be offered virtually this year and is a synchronous course. Students cannot miss more than TWO DAYS within the 6 week session.
