• Northwest Pennsylvania Collegiate Academy Graduation Requirements

    All Collegiate Academy students are required to take a minimum of three (3) Advanced Placement or Dual Enrollment courses prior to graduating.

    When a student doubles up on classes in a core subject area, he or she is not permitted to take a year off. For example, if a student doubles up in science in her sophomore year, she still must schedule a science class in both her junior and senior years.

    All Collegiate Academy graduates must apply to a four-year college or university of their choosing during their senior year.

    Students planning on attempting to graduate early must meet all above graduation requirements. Students choosing this option must schedule a meeting with a guidance counselor at the end of their sophomore year to develop an early-graduation plan.

    All students must score proficient or advanced on the Algebra, Biology, and Literature Keystone Exams.
