EARLY GRADUATION AND EARLY ADMISSION TO COLLEGE


The Board of Education will allow a student to graduate from high school early, upon the recommendation of their guidance counselor and approval of the high school Principal, if he/she completes the necessary application form by April 15 of the sophomore year and is able to fulfill all graduation requirements.

A student who presents a strong academic background and prefers to spend his/her senior year at college may do so if he/she completes the necessary forms by February 1 of the junior year indicating approval from parent, counselor and Principal. A student attending college during their senior year must also complete the requirements for high school graduation. A two semester, six credit hour college course will be accepted for one unit of high school credit. A one semester three credit hour college course will be accepted for one half unit of high school credit.

A student shall not be denied an exact class rank if he/she wishes to pursue early graduation or early admission to college.
