At Fayston, we highly value individualized learning, and our graduation requirements only require some of the most basic fundamentals while other elements can be modified and changed based on the specific needs of the individual student.
To successfully complete their graduation requirements students are required to have taken 22.0 credits over 4 years of high school. This calculation is based on 1.0 credit courses per academic year, and 0.5 credit given to a half-time courses per academic year.
To discuss specific graduation requirements, please consult a College Counselor.

* Some courses have their requirements based on the amount of credits/number of courses taken: Science, Social Studies, Physical education, etc.
* ‘Support’ Classes do not count towards graduation credits, but are given exemption in total graduation credit count, and therefore do not affect the ability to graduate.
* Students are not required to take additional ‘ELECTIVE’ courses (i.e half-time courses) to fulfil their total credit amount, and instead choose to take additional full-time courses that may be available.
