The University of California Office of the President has granted A-G approval for 34 of Edgenuity's online courses.

Approval for the Edgenuity courses will last through the 2015-2016 school year.
Edgenuity courses receiving A-G approval include:
- Five English language arts classes;
- Two science courses, biology and chemistry;
- Eight math courses;
- Three social studies courses;
- Five high school Spanish and French language classes;
- Four general elective courses such as economics and geography; and

"Edgenuity is proud to uphold the high academic standards outlined by the University of California across such a broad range of our approved online and blended learning courses," said Sari Factor, CEO of Edgenuity, in a prepared statement.
