know what you need to succeed
Requirements for graduation vary between the different diplomas offered. Each diploma requires a slightly different emphasis in coursework, credit hours earned and grade point average.
A student must be enrolled for the last semester of his/her final academic year, completing a minimum of two units of academy coursework during that semester.
NON-NATIVE ENGLISH LANGUAGE STUDENTS
An international student whose native language is not English must complete an English language proficiency test with a satisfactory score to graduate with a College Preparatory Diploma.
GRADE PLACEMENT POLICY
When a student application is processed, grade placement is considered. In order to make normal, consistent progress towards graduation, a student should earn an average of approximately 5.5 credits per year. This will accumulate, over a four-year period, the approximate number of credits required for graduation (22.5).
Grade placement is credit-based. The student must complete the previous grade with the minimum credit totals shown below:
- successful completion of eighth grade—grade 9 (freshman)
- 5.5 units—grade 10 (sophomore)
- 10.5 units—grade 11 (junior)
- 15.5 units—grade 12 (senior)
