* High school mathematics courses (Algebra I, Geometry, Algebra II, Pre-Statistics, Pre-Calculus) completed prior to 9th grade may be counted toward the fulfillment of the mathematics requirement.
The Silver Cord Program recognizes students for their volunteer service during their high school years.
