The District Course Catalog provides you with course descriptions for Monte Vista High School course offerings as well as university designations for college admission requirements.  For example:  Art 1, Theater Arts 1, Orchestra, and Women’s Ensemble are all designated as Performing Fine Arts courses for college admission and Fine Art credit for graduation requirements whereas Culinary Arts 1 is a Vocational/Applied Art and not accepted for college admission requirements, but counts for high school graduation.
