  • The Consumer Education requirement may be fulfilled by completing Consumer Economics, General Business, Economics, AP Micro, or AP Macro.
  • A passing grade in American Government indicates successful completion of the Constitution requirement.
  • Two courses must be approved as ‘Writing Intensive Courses” – one must be an English course and one may be provided as part of an approved course – this does not increase the number of required courses.
  • The Service Learning requirement allows students the opportunity to enrich and extend their learning through recognition of the needs of their schools and communities.
  • English and Math courses are sequential and each is designed as a prerequisite for the next course in the sequence. Students failing a course in Math or English MUST REPEAT the course successfully before continuing in the sequence. Summer School is the best option to make up these types of deficiencies.
