This online Drivers Education course is equivalent to a regular 30-hour classroom course and has been examined and authorized by the Licensing Operations Division of the DMV. Please note that this is the classroom section, not the behind-the-wheel course. Students who successfully complete this course, which includes an online exam, will receive an official DMV Certificate of Completion. This is required to obtain a learner's permit for all drivers between the ages of 15 ½ and 18 years old.


Please visit the website link provided for more information.

Parents and students are encouraged to create a Portal access account, which will allow them to update student information in the District’s database, review student attendance by period and see an unofficial transcript of their child’s progress.


Information and instructions for creating a Portal account can be found at: Parent/Student Portal


Please note that 3 pieces of information are required in order to create the account.

  1. Your home phone number
  2. Your student’s 7-digit identification number
  3. A Verification Pass Code (The student ID number and Verification Pass Code are printed on their report card)

A letter containing this information will also be mailed to parents without portal accounts prior to registration should a report card not be available. Assistance is also available from the front office.


Students should create a Student Portal account so that they have access to the same information and records as their parents. Students need their seven-digit student ID number, an email address (must be different than their parents’), and the unique verification code that was used to create the primary Portal account.


Students will use their Portal account to complete the registration process and choose their classes. It will be essential for students to have a valid Portal account to properly register for courses. Students will not have the ability to change the data that parents enter in the  Portal.


Information regarding opening a Portal account is available at Parent/Student Portal.

Cal Prep Academy's 2018 Graduation Ceremony will take place on Wednesday, June 6, 2018 at 3:00 p.m. at the CUSD District Office Board Room: 33122 Valle Road, San Juan Capistrano, CA 92675. Graduates need to arrive by 2:00 p.m. for mandatory rehearsal. There are no tickets needed for graduation, and the ceremony will last about one hour. 


If you are a full time Cal Prep student, you will order your cap and gown through Josten's. Caps, gowns, and tassels may be purchased for $25 or borrowed at no cost. Order forms are in the Cal Prep office. Deadline is April 13. If you are a dual enrolled student, you will order your cap and gown through your resident high school: check with your high school for their deadline. You will be able to wear your cap and gown in both the Cal Prep ceremony on June 6 and your resident school's ceremony on June 7. 


Congrats Seniors!
