Students are required to earn 24 credits in specific subject areas. A formula for graduation is depicted below. Detailed graduation requirements are listed below for each grade level in PDF documents.
All students must complete an online course within the 24 required credits in order to earn a standard diploma. More information regarding the online course requirement is outlined in the following document http://www.fldoe.org/core/fileparse.php/7574/urlt/0101173-onlinegrad.pdf An online course is a formal education program involving student–teacher interaction in which a student learns mostly through online delivery of content and instruction with some element of student control over time, place, path, or pace.
Students may meet this requirement by completing an online high school course offered by:
- Florida Virtual School (FLVS)
- A district high school (to include traditional district schools, district franchises, and
virtual charter schools)
- A postsecondary school as an online dual enrollment course
- District virtual instruction programs
Directions for creating a virtual account and registering for a course are below.
SAT and ACT
The SAT is a globally-recognized college admissions test which lets students show colleges what they know in the subjects of Reading, Writing and Mathematics. Almost all colleges and universities use the SAT to make admissions decisions. Students may register for the SAT at sat.collegeboard.org

The ACT is a national college admissions exam that consists of subject area tests in English, Mathematics, Reading, and Science. ACT results are accepted by all four-year colleges and universities in the United States. Students can register for the ACT at www.actstudent.org
