• Early Graduation is a major decision that requires principal approval. Choosing to graduate early may have a significant impact on available post-high school education and employment options. The decision should be well- planned and thoughtfully made only after careful consideration by both the student and parents. The school’s counselor will be able to provide post-secondary options available to early graduates. Students who have completed all graduation requirements may request to graduate early, either at the mid-year of their senior year or the end of their junior year. The student’s grade classification will be based on the OCS high school promotion standards. Diplomas are awarded only at the end of the school year.
