Graduation Requirements

High school graduation requirements and college/university entrance requirements are not the same. Course selection should be based on academic, career, and personal interest. Student interests and goals should guide the path through high school.

College admission requirements will vary from school to school, and it is recommended that students check admission requirements before applying to their college of choice. Students are encouraged to reach out to their high school counselor if they have questions about graduation requirements or the college admission process.
