Graduation Requirements


Students who attend Mountain Education arrive at different levels in their education; therefore, different sets of requirements apply. Students who have withdrawn from a public school must meet the graduation requirements based on their ninth grade entry date. ME students shall meet the graduation requirements outlined below. The Georgia Board of Education and ME require students to earn the number of units specified in the applicable State Board rule.



Students Who Entered the 9th Grade During 2008-09 School Year and Thereafter



English/Language Arts* 4
Mathematics* 4**
Science* 4
The 4th Science Unit may be used to meet both the science and elective requirement.
Social Studies* 3
CTAE and/or Modern Language/Latin and/or Fine Arts 3
Health and Physical Education* 1
Electives 4

*Required Courses and/or Core Courses

**Students entering ninth grade in 2008-2009, 2009-2010, and 2010-2011 only, who earn credit in Mathematics I and Mathematics II or GPS Algebra and GPS Geometry, along with 2 additional core mathematics courses, will have satisfied the minimum mathematics requirements for high school graduation.

Full Time ME students who receive a diploma are allowed to graduate throughout the year after completing graduation requirements. In the spring of each year, ME conducts a graduation ceremony for all students who have completed requirements during that school year. This is a very meaningful ceremony for students and their families, and all students are encouraged to participate.

Students who entered the 9th grade prior to the 2008-2009 school year should reference the Student Handbook for Graduation Requirements.
