Graduation Requirements

Temple Christian School is committed to helping students succeed in the classroom and beyond. Recent changes in state law introduced new graduation requirements for students in the classes of 2021 and beyond.

The changes are staged in three areas:

  • Cover the Basics - TCS requires 24 credits - includes 4 years of Bible;
  • Show Competency - earn points on state tests or show college and career preparedness;
  • Demonstrate Readiness - choose a Pathway and earn Seals that allow students to demonstrate one or more of the following: academic and technical knowledge, professional skills, social and emotional competencies, or learner and reasoning skills.

To effectively communicate the graduation pathways for students and families, Temple Christian School is developing clear communication tools. We want to ensure all students and families understand the state graduation requirements and the various options. In the coming months, we will communicate progress for each student toward the pathway that will allow him/her to successfully complete graduation  requirements.

More information can be found on the Ohio Department of Education website.
