All students in both middle and high schools are required to take the prescribed core courses outlined for their grade. The four-year course of study for high school students outlined in the curriculum section enables the student to meet the diploma requirements. A student must earn a passing grade in each course to qualify for promotion. A minimum of 26.5 High School credits is required for graduation. If a student enters Ascension after attending another high school, adjustment may be made for his/her requirements.
