Credits

A class equals a credit. Every time a student passes a class, they earn a credit. Most classes are worth 1 credit, but some classes are 1/2 credit. Students must earn 28 credits to be awarded a Science Hill Diploma. The state of Tennessee designates 22 of those credits and 6 are electives. Students have the opportunity to earn 32 credits in four years.
