Requirements for Graduation
Quite often students entering their 9th grade years are not aware of the credits required for graduation. The information below should help you know and understand the graduation requirements that must be met by graduates of United Christian Academy.
Some of the requirements listed below have been increased due to the increasingly competitive nature of our colleges and universities. We want our students to be prepared for the college of their choice.
Two programs are available, one being College Prep requiring a total of 28 credits, while the other is a General Program requiring 24 credits.
