Educational Options Programs

In addition to the five comprehensive high schools and Adult and Community Education, the Fremont Union High School District offers various educational options to meet the needs of all students. These programs operate on a referral basis, and the initial contact should be made at the student’s home school with an Assistant Principal or a Guidance Counselor. Many of these programs have limited spaces available and involve either an application process and/or an interview. Transportation to and from any of the educational options programs are the responsibility of the student and his/her family.

Placement of students in Educational Options is through the Placement Advisory Committee (PAC). The student and his/her family meet with district representatives of all programs to mutually determine appropriate placement for maximum success.

For more information, please contact the appropriate Assistant Principal or a Guidance Counselor at your home school.
