Students Transferring from Other Schools

If a student transfers from a school accredited by NCA or by one of the other five regional accrediting associations, the credits will be "accepted". These credits will count towards the cumulative credits required for graduation. The student will not transfer in any cumulative grade point average. Exceptions to accepted credits include, but are not limited to, classes that are considered study skills, tutorials, and Driver's Education classes. Students transferring from a school accredited by another organization or not accredited will have to discuss "accepted" credits with the Principal.

Please note: 12th Grade students are generally limited to students relocating or unusual circumstances.
