Graduation Requirements

All students are required to pass a certain number of Standards of Learning (SOL) tests in order to obtain verified credits for graduation. A verified credit (VC) is earned when the student passes both the course
and SOL test.


There are ten Standards of Learning (SOL) tests for students in grades 9-12:

Writing
Reading
Algebra 1
Algebra 2
Biology
Chemistry
Earth Science
Geometry
Virginia & US History
