Graduation and Promotion Requirements

The September 29, 2005 Promotion and Graduation Policy (pdf) provides information on the requirements that must be met by students to be promoted and grade 12 students to graduate. These requirements include passing major subjects and completion of a project.  This policy will remain in effect until a new policy is issued.

Although students do no participate in graduations services here at the Youth Study Center School, all coursework follows the School District required curriculum guidelines and academic progress is forwarded to the student’s Home School upon request.
