Preparing high school students for the future with the standards of college admissions officers and future employers
Homeschool Graduation Requirements
Bridgeway Academy students have been impressing admissions officers for two decades, and much of it is due to our rigorous homeschool graduation requirements. We’ve had students go to Boston University, Stanford, Amherst, Brown, Penn State, Virginia Tech and hundreds more.
And while our requirements are thorough and rigorous enough to impress the toughest admission committees, we are still dedicated to individualized learning programs. Bridgeway Academy high school students choose one of five academic tracks, each with their own set of homeschooling requirements.
Graduation Requirement Details
All Bridgeway Academy students MUST complete a minimum of 5 credit courses (the equivalent of one school year) to graduate. High school seniors transferring to Bridgeway who require less than 5 credits to complete their graduation track must take additional elective courses to meet the 5 credit minimum.
Within our five graduation tracks, there are specific course/credit graduation requirements, but each track includes the following as a minimum:
|English Language Arts||4 credits|
|Math||3–4 credits depending on diploma track|
|Science||3–4 credits depending on diploma track|
|Social Studies||4 credits—must include World History, World Geography, US History, and US Government|
|Humanities Electives||2 credits–must include one course in religious studies|
