Graduation Requirements

  • Lewis-Palmer has a four-year course of study. Therefore, graduation requirements will be based upon units of credit earned in grades 9, 10, 11 and 12. We do not accept any credits taken before the first day of the 9th grade year.

    Twenty-five (25) units of credit must be earned in order to meet district graduation requirements. Specific requirements are listed below. The remaining necessary units of credit will be considered as electives and may be selected from any course in the curriculum.

    Twelve (12) credits of the total twenty-five (25) credits required for graduation are identified as specific requirements. The remaining thirteen (13) credits may be completed by taking academic electives in specific content areas or any other electives available.
