Welcome to La Sierra High School and the Opportunity Program.
Your student was identified for the Opportunity Program by the comprehensive school team based on credits earned and current class grades. Students will join La Sierra High School for our summer school program for 6 weeks, beginning Tuesday, June 1st through Thursday, July 8th, 2021. Each student will be enrolled in three classes and can earn up to 15 credits. Students will attend in a Hybrid Learing schedule**. Two days will be on campus and two days will be virtually through their chromebooks at home. Monday through Thursday from 7:45 am to 1:00 am.
To participate in our program, students and parents will need to complete the 3 steps of the enrollment process:
- Watch the Opportunity Orientation Video
- Complete the Enrollment Forms
- Return the completed enrollment forms to La Sierra High School
Please complete steps 1-3 below. We are excited and look forward to working with you and your student this summer and the coming school year. Please do not hesitate to contact our school if you have any questions regarding our program.

La Vista High School and the La Sierra High School 10th-Grade Opportunity Program serve District students who are too far behind in credits to graduate on time. Every one of these approximately 500 students needs to attend summer school. During summer these at-promise students can earn more units in La Vista and in the Opportunity Program than they can earn at the comprehensive high school. In addition, summer is a time to orient new students to the campus and culture and to administer reading and math tests that assess learning loss and placement into appropriate intervention classes in the fall. Due to current COVID-19 guidelines established by the CDPH and OCHCA regarding social distancing on the bus and in the classroom, not all of these students can be accommodated to attend in person. Therefore, La Vista and the 10-Grade Opportunity Program will be on a Hybrid schedule this summer. However, the Governor has announced that on or around June 15, there will be a full re-opening of the economy, which will impact most capacity limits and social-distancing mandates; if this happens any time during the summer school session La Vista/La Sierra administration will pivot from the Hybrid schedule to a 100% in-person schedule the next day. Students and their families will be notified of this possibility prior to the start of summer school.
