2020 Course List

Below is a partial list of courses available during GAP 2020. We will be updating this 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.

2020 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.
