Foreign Language Classes: Check!*
High school is tough; it's even tougher getting into a competitive college. NUVHS offers a number of UC a-g-approved online courses, including foreign language courses in Spanish and Arabic. High school students applying to UC schools must successfully complete at least two years of foreign language courses to be considered for acceptance (three is ideal).

NUVHS UC a-g-approved foreign language courses not only meet UC entrance requirements, but are also transferable as college credits.

Students can make up courses for an improved grade, or get ahead on their own time this summer. Enroll Now

*Be sure to check with Dr. Alessandri or Ms. Mitchell before enrolling.

How You Can Support Carver
Giving to Carver shows your support of our diverse programs. As a public Waldorf school, we rely on donations to provide funding for all the "extras" for our students every day such as the high-quality art supplies students use every day in their classes. Your donations have helped pay for a music program, the mobile kitchen and chalkboards. Our next goal is shaded outdoor seating! Please consider making a donation to Carver.
