Anything that matters requires hard work. And Fishburne matters. Below are the requirements to graduate—from your coarse load and JROTC participation to our grading scale and our all-important study halls. What you won’t find here—but we hope you feel every day while your here—is the total belief we have in you and our efforts to bring out the best in you… every day.
Fishburne offers three diploma options: A 23-credit Academic Diploma, a 25-credit Advanced Studies Diploma and a 22-credit International Diploma for non-native English speakers. The International Diploma does not require foreign language credits.
JROTC participation required
All high school level students are required to take one unit of JROTC each year they are at Fishburne. These subjects count as elective credits toward graduation. In addition, all students are required to fully participate in standardized testing.
About our school year
