GRADUATION REQUIREMENTS

 

LCLHS students are required to earn fifty credits to receive a diploma. One credit is awarded for the successful completion of a semester course, and two credits are awarded for successful completion of a yearlong course. Courses must be completed in the following areas:

English 8 credits
Mathematics 6 credits
Physical Education 4 credits
Scripture 8 credits
Science 6 credits
Social Studies 6 credits
Electives 12 credits

(one credit = one semester) TOTAL 50 credits

Students typically schedule seven classes per semester and have one study period. It is possible to take eight classes (an overload) and not have a study period. This is actually quite common with high ability students and those students involved with the music program. Freshmen are required to take courses from the subjects listed below:

Scripture/Bible
English
Physical Education/Health
Mathematics
Science
Social Studies
Electives are available from these areas:
Art, Band, Choir, Computers, Spanish

Therefore, during the first two years of high school, students only have one or two elective courses as the majority of their course schedule is defined by required courses in the core curriculum areas. Additional elective courses will be added to the curriculum based upon student interest and instructor availability.
