Florida Law gives all high school students the right to choose one of the two diploma options:
- 4-year (24 credit) standard high school diploma
- ACCEL Program (18 credits minimum)
If a student does not make a choice, the four year option will be selected for that student.
Each year the Florida legislature reviews the graduation requirements for entering freshmen. The requirements apply to only those 9th graders who enter high school in the year the requirements are established. Click here for the most current information.
