• Heritage Humanities is the premier academic magnet program at La Habra High School.

    This dual-tiered program offers a traditional pathway for advanced learners seeking a challenge and an Honors/AP pathway for the most serious university-oriented students. The program emphasizes a comprehensive humanities-based education, requiring students to take extensive courses in social science, English, world language, and the fine arts (visual and/or performing). Interdisciplinary integration and thematic coverage within accelerated courses ultimately facilitate a humanities-centered education for post-high school preparation.  The curriculum engages both Honors/AP and Traditional (regular) Heritage Humanities students with innovative learning activities, field trips, service, and leadership opportunities, and technology; creative teaching and learning approaches are encouraged.  The Heritage Humanities program won the California Golden Bell Award for Innovative Curriculum Design.



    The Heritage Humanities California Magnet program is:
    • The FIRST and OLDEST specialized academic program at La Habra High School

    • The ONLY designated California state magnet program at La Habra High School
    • The FIRST program at La Habra High School to be awarded a CSBA Golden Bell Award for innovation and excellence in education

    • The program with the MOST university acceptances, valedictorians, National Honor Society inductees, and California Scholarship Federation honorees at La Habra High School
