Senior High

Requirements for Graduation

This Program of Studies has been designed to provide information for students and parents as they make informed decisions regarding course selection during their years at Benilde-St. Margaret’s. Students are strongly encouraged to discuss their course selections with their counselors, teachers and parents. Benilde-St. Margaret’s offers a variety of elective courses that enhance a college preparatory curriculum. With this philosophy in mind, we will not allow students to complete their studies after the first semester of senior year.

The following is a summary of the courses that are required for graduation. One credit equals one semester of satisfactory completion of coursework, with the exception of Physical Education 9, Wellness 10, Wellness 11, Wellness 12 and Career College Planning.

The courses listed in this Program of Studies will not necessarily be the same as the final courses offered during the school year. The number of students registered for a course, scheduling priorities and personnel will determine final course offerings. Counselors are available to students and parents throughout the course selection process.
