Graduation Requirements

All students are required to have a Personal Learning Plan. A Personal Learning Plan identifies the specific coursework a student needs to take to reach his/her academic and career goals. It is based on each student’s skills and interests. The Personal Learning Plan must document a minimum of 22 units of credits. Please visit

It is the students’ responsibility to know if all requirements for graduation, college entrance, athletic eligibility, and scholarships are being met. Please refer to all colleges/universities for their admission requirements as they may vary. Students must register each year for courses required to meet high school graduation and to meet students’ post high school career and study goals.
