Graduation Requirements


Academic Requirements


Twenty-two credits (22) are required to graduate with seventeen required credits and five elective credits. One credit is awarded for a passing grade (minimum 60%) in a full year course done in a particular subject. (Students must complete both semesters of a full year course in order to earn this single credit.)  In addition, requirements for athletics, community service learning, outdoor education, and the senior project must be met.  These are outlined below. All students are encouraged to be enrolled in six courses each semester during their freshman and sophomore years, five courses each semester during their junior year and their senior year. Exceptions to these courseload requirements can be made by the Academic Dean in unique circumstances.  Within the required twenty-two credits, the following area distribution requirements should be met:
