The Sequoia Union High School District Compass Program is an 18-day transition-to-success program for incoming ninth-grade students. The main emphasis of Compass is to provide incoming 9th grade students with the opportunity to acclimate to their new high school environment through both academic and social interaction activities.


Compass students are pre-selected based on middle school recommendation, reading and math test scores. Students who qualify will be notified by their assigned high school. This program is not open to all incoming 9th grade students. Students will receive up to five elective credits toward high school graduation.


Compass will be held at each of the following sites: Carlmont, Menlo-Atherton, Sequoia, and Woodside.



June 16 - July 10, 2020
Monday - Friday 8:30 a.m. - 1:30 p.m.
