  • The High School Credit System


    In order to graduate you must complete all the requirements below.  For example, if you have 34 credits, but do not have a grade 12 English credit, you are NOT eligible to graduate because grade 12 English is a compulsory course.

    Special Note: There may be a difference between high school graduation requirements and post-secondary (university/college) entrance requirements.  You may graduate from high school but be unable to enter the school of your choice because you have not taken the right credits.
