Georgia - Graduation Requirements

In September 2007, the State Board of Education passed a new set of graduation requirements. These requirements will affect current 8th graders as they begin high school next year and all subsequent freshman classes. Students attending high school prior to the 2008-09 school year are not affected*.

The rule was revised in conjunction with the implementation of the new Georgia Performance Standards in English, Mathematics, Science, Social Studies, as well as electives. Read on to learn more about these changes.

*Please note: See the appropriate Choice Book for more on
graduation requirements for students who started high school prior
to the 2008-09 school year or ask at your local school.
