High School Graduation Requirements 

Students and parents can be overwhelmed by the complexity of writing a high school plan. One thing that makes the four-year high school plan complicated is that many of you are really doing two things:

  1. Completing high school graduation requirements.
  2. Completing college entrance requirements.


Attached you will find a document that displays our school's four-year plan and a document of a four-year plan towards high school graduation and college eligibility (fill in your course work with a pencil or edit on the computer to save for future reference).

Community Service Hours 

Please remember our students need 80 community service hours to graduate. There will be a Teen Volunteer Fair on Saturday, September 16 from 9:00am to 12:00pm. Teens will be placed at various non-profit organizations.
