Boyne City Public Schools

GRADUATION REQUIREMENTS

  1. General

    1. With trimester scheduling, students have the opportunity to earn more credits by taking more subjects. Because of the transition to trimester scheduling, total credits required for graduation has been adjusted as follows:

      Class of 2014 30 credits
      Class of 2015 31.5 credits
      Class of 2016 & beyond 33 credits

      Transfer students to Boyne City High School will be required to minimally have the total number of possible credits earned minus 2 credits for their entire high school career.

    2. Boyne City High School operates on a four-year comprehensive program, which means that students are expected to maintain a full schedule each term for four full years. Any exceptions to this due to extenuating circumstances (i.e., marriage, advanced placements) will be handled administratively on an individual basis.
