Graduation Requirements

The pathway to graduation will require students to be actively involved in the planning process for course selections and credits earned. Your Connect Teacher and staff in the Success Centre are helpful resources as you consider choices in your journey to complete high school and as you prepare for apprenticeships, the world of work and post-secondary education.

In order for students to graduate they must meet the minimum Alberta Education Graduation Requirements for a High School Diploma or the Certificate of Completion for students in the Knowledge and Employability Program.  This will also apply for students to be eligible to participate in Mandela’s Graduation Exercises.  If you do not qualify at the end for 3 years to earn a high school diploma or certificate of completion, you will also not qualify to participate in graduation exercises.

High School Diploma requirements can be found on the Alberta Education web-site:

Diploma Exams

The government has cancelled all 2019-20 Grade 12 diploma exams. Under special circumstances, students can request to write a diploma exam. For more information, please review Alberta Education’s FAQ document on Education Continuity.​

Provincial tests are part of a balanced, broad-based program of student assessment. The results provide some of the information that guides our educators as they set targets for student achievement and track the results of school improvement initiatives. Visit the CBE website for more information on our students’ provincial testing​​.​​​

Students taking specific Grade 12 core subjects write provincial Diploma Examinations at the completion of the course which count for 30% of the student’s final mark. These courses in the CBE are:

  • English Language Arts 30-1
  • English Language Arts 30-2
  • French Language Arts 30-1
  • Mathematics 30-1
  • Mathematics 30-2
  • Biology 30
  • Chemistry 30
  • Physics 30
  • Science 30
  • Social Studies 30-1
  • Social Studies 30-2

More information on Diploma Exams can be found on the Alberta Education website​.
