Students interested in athletics should plan to attend Torrance High School’s Extracurricular Night on May 5th, 2021. More information regarding this event and our athletic programs will be available in the coming weeks. For students that are interested in participating in sports, please continue to monitor your emails or the Athletics page on the Torrance High School website for more information regarding try-outs, clearance information, and eligibility.
For most athletic programs, students are required to try-out and submit medical clearance forms before being placed on the team with the exception of football, wrestling and cross country. Students interested in other sports should select PE 9 when submitting their course requests on PowerSchool. Once students have completed try outs and have been medically cleared, counselors will receive final rosters from our coaches and will adjust schedules accordingly.
For students interested in taking a summer course, please take a look at the summer programs list. When you have decided where you would like to take the course, please complete the Summer Correspondence Course Pre-Approval Google Form. Please note that it is your responsibility to enroll yourself into your summer class.
Once the student has completed their summer course and provided their counselor with a copy of their summer transcript, schedules will be adjusted accordingly.
