Griffin Connections


Griffin Connections is a remote learning program offered by the Los Alamitos Unified School District, providing the opportunity for Los Alamitos High School students to attend graduation requirement courses (World History, US History, Government, Economics) for free during the summer.


  • Classes meet A-G course requirements and are offered through Edgenuity in a 95% independent online learning and 5% in-person traditional classroom learning environment. (Advanced Placement courses are not offered.)
  • Classes are designed for students who are self-motivated, independent learners who are capable of wisely managing their time to meet ongoing deadlines in a fast-paced learning environment.
  • Courses include weekly check-in points and the expectation of completing curriculum is scaffolded into demands that must be completed and turned in on weekly assigned dates.  
  • The curricular demands of the courses will NOT allow students to rapidly complete a semester or leave the bulk of their work until the end of the course.
  • Daily student commitment is 3-4 hours per day.
  • Students who register for a Griffin Connections course MUST attend ONE Griffin Connections Course Readiness Module. The online meeting link will be shared out to students that submit an intent to attend Griffin Connections.

Students should complete the Griffin Connections Course Self-Survey to help in determining if they are a good fit for a Griffins Connections Course.



Students commit to completing a full-year course (both semesters) in two, three-week semesters. Requirements include attending one in-person classroom day and two Zoom sessions for semester I, and three Zoom sessions for Semester II.

Note: Students will NOT receive credit for a semester if they miss more than one day of classroom learning. Office hours could be used to make-up the seat time for one absence.
