Our Graduation Policies and Beyond
General Graduation Policy
Alice Christian School offers a College/University preparatory education. We believe this will require a considerable effort and commitment on the part of our families. We recommend that parents be prepared for an increasing amount of study time as the student approaches his/her senior year.
In order to be considered a senior at A.C.S., the student may have no more than 90 Paces left to complete at the beginning of the first semester or no more than 50 Paces left to complete at the beginning of the second semester of school. Senior students must complete all prescribed requirements for graduation prior to graduation day.
We do not encourage “early graduation” (graduating before a student’s 12th year of school). However, we do allow “early graduation” upon the parent’s request if the student has completed the entire Honors Course of study.
Seniors who finish their Pace requirements for graduation are still required to complete any non-Pace classes to earn credits for those courses.
Seniors will continue to pay for full tuition up to and including the end of the current quarter, even though Pace work may have been completed for graduation requirements.
Our school offers three types of diplomas: Honors, General, and Vocational.
More specific information about the different diplomas will be made available upon request. However, the main course of study that we focus on is for the Honors diploma.
