Graduation Requirements

  • Florida students entering grade nine may choose from one of five options to earn a standard diploma.

    • 24-credit program
    • 18-credit, Academically Challenging Curriculum to Enhance Learning (ACCEL) option
    • Career and Technical Education (CTE) Pathway
    • An International Baccalaureate (IB) curriculum
    • An Advanced International Certificate of Education (AICE) curriculum

    All of these graduation paths include opportunities to take rigorous academic courses designed to prepare students for their future academic and career choices. All students, regardless of graduation program, must still earn a specific grade point average (GPA) on a 4.0 scale, achieve passing scores on the Grade 10 FAST ELA, and meet specific end-of-course (EOC) assessment requirements to graduate with a standard diploma (refer to the chart concerning graduation requirements).
