Successfully completing the requirements listed on the Curriculum Overview entitles the student to a high school diploma; however, they do not necessarily suffice for admission to post high school education or for employment. The student, after consulting with parents and with the school, is ultimately responsible for choosing the courses which will enable him/her to meet his/her goals. Teachers and Guidance Counselors are available to assist and/or to discuss a schedule of classes relative to the student’s ability, goals, and academic interest.
A student must be enrolled as a full-time student for four years i.e. taking a minimum of six credits each year, in order to complete graduation requirements. There may be a rare exception to this rule. A student, while in attendance at St. Catherine's, must take all required courses at St. Catherine's. All exceptions will be dealt with directly by the Assistant Principal/Academics, Registrar, Guidance Counselor, the student and his/her parents. Request for this exception must be made in writing to the Assistant Principal.
A student transferring from a local public high school must attend St. Catherine's a minimum of two consecutive semesters as a senior to be eligible to receive a diploma from St. Catherine's.
