Clubs for High School Students

California Scholarship Federation, CSF, a club at CWCS that started in the 2005-06 year for high achieving high school students. Most regular high schools belong to the statewide CSF organization, where membership is considered a mark of distinction by colleges and universities. The purpose of CSF is to recognize students who have demonstrated outstanding academic achievement. CSF emphasizes high standards of service, scholarship, and citizenship. Qualifying for membership is on a semester basis following a point system that requires A’s and B’s in the most difficult classes. The majority of the required membership points must come from University of California accepted coursework, also known as “a-g” courses. Please contact Mary Halter at mhalter@cwcharter.org for an application. This club is open to sophomores, juniors, seniors and semester two freshman.

Applications are accepted each semester and are due in the fall by September 15* and again in the spring by February 15. To apply for CSF Click on this application link.
