Graduation Requirements and Resources

The Nova Project does follow the Seattle Public School District’s graduation requirements. Students at Nova may go about getting the credits differently than a traditional school high school, but don’t worry parents, your student is still required to show their learning and to have the Seattle Public School District requirements. Graduation requirements are changing and the year your student will be graduating will effect the how much credits they are required to have.
