Graduation Requirements

 

The requirements for a Vandebilt diploma are a minimum of 26 units of credit from the subjects outlined in the graduation requirements chart. Students must carry at least seven credits in the freshman year, at least six and a half in the sophomore year, at least six and a half in the junior year, and at least six in the senior year.
 
The Vandebilt Catholic High School curriculum is designed with preparation for college as its focus.  Students must be enrolled in a math, English, science and religion course every year of attendance at Vandebilt. Students will meet most college and university entrance requirements, when completing graduation requirements, if they earn a Vandebilt diploma. However, parents and students are cautioned to investigate individual target university requirements. All four-year Louisiana universities require two units of the same foreign language.
TOPS requirements and state diploma requirements differ from VCHS graduation requirements. Students should see their guidance counselor for more information. 
 
Skills classes are only available to students enrolled in the Resource Program.  Basic classes for some content areas are also available to students who demonstrate academic need and are filled based on enrollment.
