REQUIREMENTS FOR GRADUATION                                                   5.2.31


All students who attend Millis High School must meet all state and local graduation requirements in order to earn a Millis High School Diploma.


110 credits are needed to graduate. 80 credits of the 110 must be earned in core subject areas (English, math, science, social studies, and foreign language). Credits, course, and service requirements as approved by vote of the Millis School Committee, will be published annually in the Student Handbook.


Students who have completed all local requirements for Millis High School graduation but have not passed the state required MCAS testing will receive a Certificate of Attainment in place of a Millis High School Diploma.


Early Graduation: A student who has completed the requirements for graduation prior to the end of senior year may be graduated at the discretion of the School Committee.


Credit for Foreign Study: Students who are away for a term or year to participate in a student exchange program or otherwise study abroad may receive credits toward high school graduation when (l) study plans are approved by the school administration in advance; and (2) the institution where the study occurred submits a record of the student's work. In these instances, the Principal and student's guidance counselor will evaluate the work and assign credit for it according to standards prevailing in Millis High School.
