Graduation Requirements

To graduate, a student must complete 26 credits: 24 academic credits and 2 credits in physical education. Students are expected to take coursework in English, math, science, social studies, and physical education each year. Preparation in a world language is also highly recommended. All students may only take one study hall in their schedule. Seniors must pass the equivalent of five full-credit courses to graduate, one must be English IV. 

Specific minimum requirements are:

• 4 credits in English

• 3 credits in mathematics

• 3 credits in science (including 2 in a lab science)

• 3 credits in social studies (including 1 in U.S. History)

• 2 credits in physical education

• 1 credit in art

We must emphasize that these are minimum requirements. To take full advantage of the learning opportunities available at St. Andrew’s, and to prepare most effectively for further education, students typically go beyond the minimum requirements listed.
