ON THE ROAD TO GRADUATION
SCA presents high school students with three graduation tracks to help meet academic and career goals after high school. While each student is required to complete 230 credits with a minimum 2.0 GPA (the BASIC TRACK), SCA encourages students to pursue the COLLEGE PREPARATORY TRACK at minimum in order to increase opportunities of success in college and in the work environment.
SCA GRADUATION TRACKS
1. BASIC DIPLOMA TRACK
Successful completion of 230 credits of required courses with a minimum 2.0 GPA
2. COLLEGE PREPARATORY TRACK
Successful completion of 240-270 credits of required courses with a minimum 3.0 GPA
3. HONORS TRACK

See track outlines below for more details.
Students who plan to earn a diploma with SCA must also meet the residency requirement*, which is a minimum of 4 courses (or 40 credits) each high school year at SCA. This includes SCA online courses.
*Requirements for residency and diplomas are based on policies set forth in the SCA Parent & Student handbook for the student's high school entry year unless otherwise stated. Current policies and requirements can be found in the current SCA Parent & Student Handbook.
