TCCS offers two programs of study for high school students.
The general program includes the credits required for graduation and corresponds to the California state requirements. The Advanced College Prep program is a more rigorous curriculum, requires the completion of more advanced courses, and requires a higher GPA in these courses.

TCCS calculates class rank by comparing weighted numerical grade averages. Valedictorians and Salutatorians have a minimum TCCS enrollment requirement, are expected to display a Christian lifestyle and testimony, and are determined by comparing the weighted numerical averages for courses completed at TCCS (in the case of transfer students, selected high school courses and/or community college courses may be excluded from the calculation).
