Samohi CSF Requirements


    Students earn membership in CSF if they apply and have earned 10 (ten) CSF points. Points are earned on grades from the previous semester according to the following scale.

    A = 3 CSF points*
    B = 1 CSF point*
    C = 0 CSF points
    D or F in any course, even if not counted for CSF, disqualifies the student from membership

    *1 extra point for an A or a B in an AP, IB, or Honors-designated course, not to exceed two such points per semester

    • 4 (Four) of the 10 (ten) points must come from List I courses.
    • 7 (Seven) of the 10 (ten) points (including the four List I points) must come from List I and II courses. Of course, all seven points may come from List I.
    • The last 3 (three) points may come from any list.
    • Only 5 (five) courses (or 25 credits) may be used to earn the 10 (ten) points. 

    Keep in mind that courses such as P.E., teacher assistant, office aide, or repeated courses do not earn any CSF points.
    Poor citizenship may disqualify students from membership.
