The Contemporary Health course aligns with California’s Health Youth Act and high school content standards. It prepares students to make informed and responsible decisions about drugs, mental health, relationships and sexuality. This includes negotiation and refusal skills and critical abilities to avoid high-risk activities and overcome peer pressure. The course also includes comprehensive sexual health education, including sensitive and medically accurate coverage of pregnancy, contraception and STIs.
