High School Graduation Requirements
Graduation requirements were substantially increased by the Florida Legislature in 2010, and these changes have been phased-in over a period of years. These graduation requirements include passing FCAT 2.0, FCAT Writing, and required end-of course (EOC) exams.
In addition to these graduation changes, promotion to the 4th grade and to graduate from high school is contingent upon a student achieving a certain score on FCAT.
Students entering 9th grade may choose from one of five options to earn a standard high school diploma:
¨ A four year, 24-credit program
¨ An International Baccalaureate (IB) Program
¨ An Advanced International Certificate of Education (AICE) curriculum
¨ A three year, 18-credit college preparatory program
¨ A three-year, 18-credit career preparatory program
Those students entering 9th grade in 2015-2016 or after and graduating on time in 2018-2019 or after will have to meet the following requirements regardless of which diploma option they choose. This includes students in elementary school at this time as well as sixth graders:
