The traditional Cascia Hall program is college preparatory and seeks to educate the whole person; therefore, the requirements go beyond the scope of state and national guidelines. Within the scope of this goal, there are different courses whose successful completion prepares the student for entrance into college and/or personal growth. A student must be enrolled in a minimum of six courses each semester which will include English, Mathematics, Science, Social Studies, and Theology.

The student must achieve an average of “C” for four years of high school in order to obtain the school’s recommendation for college.  A student must successfully complete 28.75 credits during high school, 5.0 of which must be earned during senior year, in order to be granted a diploma.  Note: 0.5 credit = 1 semester of passing work.

Students must have approval from the Principal to enroll in more than three AP classes per semester.

All seniors must have taken one standardized achievement test (ACT or SAT) and have the results sent to Cascia Hall before the end of the first semester of their senior year.

On-line class credits are not accepted for any course requirements at Cascia Hall without approval by the Principal.
