Honors diploma requirements are being revised for the class of 2021 and beyond! Click here for information on the revised honors diploma criteria. 

Ohio's options for a high school diploma have recently changed! In addition to earning 21 high school credits (this has not changed), students can meet the additional graduation requirements by a variety of options through the new graduation pathways. Most students in the graduating classes of 2021 and 2022 will meet this by earning 18 graduation points total on seven end-of-course exams (also known as AIR Tests or Ohio’s State Tests), with a minimum of 4 points on english tests, 4 points on math tests, and 6 points total between science and social studies tests. Once the default minimums have been met, the additional required points may come from any of the categories. These tests take place each winter and/or spring, and each of the seven tests is worth 1 to 5 graduation points. Students may also earn graduation points through Advanced Placement (AP) tests or College Credit Plus (CCP) courses but will still have to take the state tests in some areas. This points system replaces the old Ohio Graduation Test (OGT) requirement for graduation you may be familiar with. The class of 2023 and beyond has a new set of graduation requirements that is different. All of this information is in our course planning handbook (posted below) and is also discussed with students each year during the scheduling process. Click here to visit the Ohio Department of Education (ODE) website for more information for your graduating class.
