Graduation Requirements Cut and Save

Students starting their studies in the 2017-18 and beyond will have to take 186 credits in general + 8 more credits for every year enrolled. Our method grants one credit for 45 minutes of weekly class time. Thus, each course grants at least 2 credits per trimester. This program can be completed in three or four years (with the former requires 24 weekly hours of instruction and the latter 18 weekly hours).

Students may receive credit for classes they have taken elsewhere. Recognition of previous education is subject to the discretion of the Principal, and is generally reserved for students who took AP classes or classes in math and science in accredited schools, usually with an external exam to validate the achievement (SAT-II/AP etc).
