ACT’s graduation rates, year to year, range from 92% to 100%. Because students choose to attend ACT, they have a vested interest in attending class. Student attendance rates are exceptional. All students who graduate ACT must complete the following requirements:
English: no fewer than 4 credits
Mathematics: no fewer than 4 credits
Science: no fewer than 3 credits
Social Studies: no fewer than 3 credits
Physical Education: no fewer than 2 credits
Health: .5 credits
Foreign Language: no fewer than 2 credits
Community Service: .5 credits
Fine and Performing Arts: no fewer than 20 credits
Senior Capstone Project: 1 credit
The Senior Capstone Project gives students an opportunity investigate a specialized area of interest as they apply and demonstrate the skills and knowledge they have acquired in arts and academics. Seniors will have the assistance of a faculty advisor to guide them through the process entailed in this project, and an adult mentor, who has specific knowledge of the area the student has chosen to explore. The Senior Capstone Project Committee will conduct a final evaluation of each student’s Project.
Academic Performance Expectations
Students must also achieve a rating of “Proficient” on at least one formal, summative assessment in each Academic Performance Expectation:
