for the Class of 2019 & Beyond
High school courses are semester-length and may be .5 or 1.0 credit. Scholars take one 1.0 credit class per semester to graduate in 4 years.
1.0 credit classes require approximately 7.5 hours per week or 90 minutes per day of work. .5 credit classes require approximately 5 hours per week or 90 minutes each day to complete in one semester.
Time requirements are based on a full 90 day semester term.
Courses begun late in the term will require more hours per day/week to complete the course by the end of the semester.
