The American High School Diploma

The four-year program of studies leading to the American High School Diploma balances a broad exposure to the six major academic disciplines (English, Modern and Classical Languages, Mathematics, Experimental Science, Humanities and the Arts), while encouraging students to pursue in-depth study in areas of personal interest through a choice of electives. Each student is expected to carry at least 5 full-time courses each year. The 19-credit requirement for graduation is as follows:


  • English (4)
  • Modern Languages (3)
  • Humanities (3)
  • Experimental Science (3)
  • Mathematics (3)
  • Electives (2)
  • Arts (1)


In addition, non-credit sports and a service project are yearly requirements. Graduating seniors must also submit a research paper and pass a computer proficiency test.
