2023 Course List

Below is a list of courses to be offered. We will be updating this course list as courses are added. If you have suggestions of courses you would like to see offered, please email Please note that this summer’s program will be conducted in either a Synchronous Learning Model or an Asynchronous Learning Model. 

Synchronous Learning:

Those classes being taught within the Get Ahead Program in a Synchronous Learning environment will utilize a set schedule of class meeting times each day through a virtual online platform.  During these meeting times, the instructor will provide direct instruction and learning opportunities for students to interact with the instructor and other students.  In addition to these class meetings, the instructor will post assignments that students will be expected to complete and submit electronically.  This learning environment will emulate a typical classroom environment while utilizing the virtual online platform to support the instruction and delivery of material by the instructor. 

** CVUSD students-Please note that Chemistry CP/H, the subsequent course to Biology CP/H, requires a grade of “B” or better in Biology CP/H, and concurrent enrollment in Algebra 2 CP/H is recommended for both Thousand Oaks (TOHS) and Westlake High School (WHS). The requirements for Chemistry CP at Newbury Park High School are identical to those at TOHS and WHS.  However, it is recommended that students matriculating to the honors levels in science at Newbury Park High School, or any other CVUSD or non-CVUSD school, consult with their counselor to determine best options.

2023 Course List Continued

Asynchronous Learning:

Those classes being taught within the Get Ahead Program Asynchronous Learning environment will allow students to access, complete, and submit course materials within a daily schedule that the student sets for themselves.  The instructor will post material and assignments and will be available for support and assistance through individual communication between the instructor and student.  Students will be expected to compete and submit these assignments electronically. This learning environment relies on students being more independent in their learning opportunities. 

Policies and Procedures

The Conejo Schools Foundation GetAhead Program (GAP) utilizes CANVAS as our learning management system. If you are currently a CVUSD student, you will be assigned a unique CSF student ID number and login. Our program DOES NOT utilize the CVUSD CANVAS platform or login information.

Attendance policy: Within our GetAhead Program, we utilize two different learning environments: Asynchronous Learning and Synchronous Learning. Attendance will be monitored through student participation each day that class is being held. This participation will look different depending on the learning environment being utilized. In the Asynchronous Learning environments, students are expected to login daily to the online platform being utilized by the instructor. In addition to log in, students are expected to access posted work/assignments, complete work/ assignments, and submit work/assignments according to the schedule provided by the instructor. In this environment, a student may choose to work ahead to complete assignments but may not fall behind. In the Synchronous Learning environments, students are expected to log in and participate in class lessons and activities during the scheduled time of the class. This schedule and timing will be established by the instructor of the course prior to the first day of the class. In addition to the “meeting time,” students are expected to access, complete and submit posted work/assignments according to the schedule provided by the instructor.
