What are the graduation requirements?
Our State graduation requirements are designed to ensure students
have a solid foundation of reading, writing, math and science skills, no
matter the path they choose after high school. We encourage
families and students to meet regularly with their school counselors to
ensure they are on track for graduation.

The Certificate of Academic Achievement
Credits are earned by successfully passing high school courses. Students earn .5 credits for each semester course passed. Information on specific courses and credits can be obtained from your counselor.
Universities, colleges or vocational training programs may require additional credits or other pre-requisites.
All students enrolled in
Central Kitsap School District shall have a High School and Beyond Plan
that includes transcripts/test scores, a resume, cover letter, letters of
recommendation, awards, certificates, personal statement, sample of best work, a
Personal Education Plan, and artifacts of the Culminating Project to document a
student's completion of the High School and Beyond Plan requirement.
The Culminating Project provides students with
opportunities to connect school to life outside of school. Students choose
projects that connect to career, academic, community service, and/or cultural
interests. These projects are the basis for students to refine and
demonstrate the skills they have gained in school while pursuing personal
interests. Students maintain learning logs and make formal presentations
about their project. Staff will use a common checklist or rubric to review
each component of the Culminating Project to ensure that it meets Central
Kitsap School District standards.
