Credits towards graduation are accumulated from Level 9 onward. One credit is earned for each level of study (12 PACEs in one subject) completed. In addition to the core subjects, certain electives are required for graduation. Further electives may be chosen according to the student’s preferred vocational direction. Our Guide to Academic Credits might help you to visualise this. A maximum of three non-academic credits may be counted towards graduation.
Students graduating from Level 12 will be awarded an American High School Diploma, conferred by Victory Life Christian School (School of Tomorrow® provide the curriculum, but they do not confer the awards). High school transfer students and VLCS homeschool students must complete at least one year as a full-time student in VLCS before they may receive the American High School Diploma issued by VLCS.
