Standard High School Diploma 

A high school diploma is the first step to going to college and preparing for careers.

Options to Earn Your High School Diploma

Florida students can earn a standard high school diploma by completing one of the following programs:

  • 24 Credit Program, which requires four credits each in English Language Arts and Math, three credits each in Science and Social Studies, one credit each in the Arts and Physical Education, and eight credits in electives, including one online course.
  • Academically Challenging Curriculum to Enhance Learning (18 credits), which requires the same courses as the 24 Credit Program minus Physical Education, five electives and an online course.
  • International Baccalaureate or Advanced International Certificate of Education, which are rigorous college preparatory programs offered at some schools.
