Graduation Requirements
At Legacy Online School, students face specific graduation requirements that mirror those found in traditional brick-and-mortar institutions. In public school settings, students often attend gatherings discussing these standard prerequisites, or they receive visits from guidance counselors in their classrooms to assist them in registering for the necessary credits.

At LOS, your Learning Support specialist ensures your compliance with these criteria, and our enrollment team meticulously tracks your credit progression toward graduation. There are four critical areas that students need to understand as they work toward their graduation goals:
  • Core Courses
  • Elective Courses
  • Minimum Grade Standards

Core Courses
To meet the graduation requirements at Legacy Online School, students must accumulate a set number of credits in each essential subject area. These core subjects encompass mathematics, science, social studies, and English. The specific credit requisites for each core class depend on the academic program in which you are enrolled.

At Legacy Online School, to earn your 18-credit diploma, you must enroll in specific core courses. Students need to acquire four math credits, three science credits, three social studies credits, and four English credits.

It's crucial to complete as many core class credits as early as possible during your academic journey. Keep in mind that you need to earn one English credit for each grade level you complete. Progressing successfully through your mandatory English classes is of utmost importance. You'll begin with four main courses in English, followed by American Literature and then British Literature, if necessary.

To meet state requirements, all Standard High School students must complete math levels up to Algebra II for their high school diploma. This credit requirement is valuable because most colleges and universities expect students to demonstrate proficiency in Algebra II.

Legacy Online School graduates should also fulfill one full credit of the U.S. History within their required social studies courses to meet state graduation requirements. Lastly, students have flexibility in their science courses and can choose science classes according to their interests to meet the credit requirements. If you plan to pursue a science-based career, taking more advanced science classes will be beneficial in preparing you for your post-secondary education.

Honors Diploma Track
At Legacy Online School, students enrolled in the Honors face higher credit requirements for graduation. This program mandates 24 credits for graduation, including five math credits, four science credits, five English credits, and four social studies credits.

It's essential to earn one credit each in English and math for every grade level you complete because you'll need to accumulate four credits in each subject. In the Honors program, you will take two survey English courses, followed by American Literature and then British Literature. The AP program, in addition to these courses, provides the choice of AP English Literature and Composition or AP English Language and Composition. For math courses, you can choose from the traditional courses, along with options like Probability and Statistics, Trigonometry, and AP Calculus AB.

Honors and AP students are required to earn at least four social studies credits. Within these credits, one full credit of U.S. History and one full credit of World History are necessary for Honors students. AP students must also include Government and Economics in their course selections to graduate. Similar to the Standard program, students in the Honors and AP programs have the flexibility to choose from a variety of core science classes to fulfill their three required credits. However, if you plan to pursue a science-based career after high school, challenging yourself with advanced science courses such as Physics is highly recommended.

Elective Classes
At Legacy Online School, elective courses encompass any classes outside the core subject areas. To fulfill the minimum state graduation requirements, all students, regardless of their program, must complete a semester of health, a semester of physical education, and a full grade-level fine arts class.

For Standard students, a total of four elective credits are necessary. Two of these credits are fulfilled through the mandatory electives mentioned earlier, while the remaining two can be selected based on your personal interests. Elective courses provide an excellent opportunity to delve into subjects that intrigue you or broaden your knowledge by exploring entirely new topics.

Honors and AP students, on the other hand, must earn a total of six elective credits. In addition to the health, physical education, and fine arts credits, Honors and AP students must complete four additional credits in required international language courses.

Grade Requirements
At Legacy Online School, students enrolled in the Standard, Honors, or Accelerated are required to meet specific grade criteria to earn class credit. It is essential for every student to achieve a minimum average score of 60% or higher in their courses. Within each class, students must take a final exam and pass it with an average score of 60% or better. In addition to their overall class score and the passing grade on the final exam, all essays and writing projects should also attain the required 60% or higher average.

Our students regularly meet these expectations, thanks to the opportunity to use notes during exams and have two chances to retake them. Furthermore, they can revise and resubmit their essays, which contributes to their success in meeting these grade requirements.
