EARNING CREDITS – PLANNING FOR GRADUATION
Once students begin Grade 10, they should start to keep track of the credits they earn. Students earn one credit for each class they pass at the Grade 10, Grade 11 and Grade 12 levels. Students require a minimum of 24 credits to graduate from high school.
Although the guidance counsellors check credits for graduation, it is the responsibility of each student to make sure that she/he has the requirements for graduation. In Grade 10 students can begin to access the High School Planner in My Blueprint, a career exploration program used by Regina Catholic Schools. It is an excellent tool for planning high school courses and ensuring graduation eligibility.
Note: Completion of graduation requirements will ensure a recognized Grade 12 standing, however post-secondary programs at universities, colleges and technical schools may have specific entry criteria that must be met in order to be admitted to a particular program. As students make their course selections in Grades 10, 11 and 12 they should investigate the entrance criteria for specific post-secondary programs. See a guidance counsellor for assistance.
