Graduation Requirements

ABQCA scholars follow the state graduation requirements of the year that they first entered high school according to their transcripts.  Click the links for worksheets which will help you track your progress toward graduation.

  • Scholars whose 9th grade year is 08-09 and earlier need to earn 23 credits.
  • Scholars whose 9th grade year is 09-10 to 12-13 need to earn 24 credits, with 4 credits of math instead of 3.
  • Scholars whose 9th grade year is 13-14 and later need to earn 24 credits, including Health as an additional requirement.

 

In addition to earning these credits, NM also requires students who began high school in 2011-2012 or later to pass a standardized test (PARCC) in order to graduate.  If students do not pass the PARCC, they can use the ADC (Alternative Demonstration of Competency) to replace the PARCC test and graduate with a full high school diploma.
