The accredited curriculum is designed and taught to prepare students for success in college.
To satisfy the requirements for a diploma, a student must earn the required number of credits, must pass all courses taken during the Senior year, and must cooperate with all school policies, rules and regulations.
A credit is defined as a completed unit of study. An hour of work is the equivalent of 47 minutes of class time (often called a “contact hour”). A minimum of 120 hours of work by each student is required for each unit of credit. Ordinarily, a course must cover a year-long period for every unit of credit given.
