Earning a High School Diploma
Earning a high school diploma through the WCFS program involves tailoring graduation requirements to meet the specific interests and needs of you, the student.
You will select high school courses for credit from a pool of choices within the general requirements for graduation. These selections will be based upon your needs. The content of each course will be determined by your goals and opportunities using Standard or Applied styled course work. Special emphasis may be created by using your electives and Bible courses to concentrate your course selections in a particular field of interest.
Generally, take basic course requirements first then Electives, Work Study and Christian Service later. This will provide more flexibility for you from year to year. A High School Course Planner document is located at the centerfold for your planning convenience.
You must register every course with the WCFS office for which you plan to receive credit. Use the High School Registration Form created for this purpose and submit everything in a timely manner. Applied courses require approval via the Course Description Form.
Final credit awards for all course work is determined by the WCFS office. Be sure to maintain all necessary records for your student portfolio. See High School Record Keeping Policy for portfolio contents and record keeping requirements. We will review course work at the regularly scheduled Home Visits conducted twice each year. Be sure to follow the course content you outlined in your Course Description or the Standard Course Description if you opted for that.
Graduation occurs after final completion of all requirements, submittals and payment of all accounts. Students may participate in the WCFS Commencement Exercises only if they abide by the code of dress and conduct and requirements of the graduation program.
