Lakeside Christian School requires a minimum of 26 credits for graduation from high school, which includes one credit in Bible for each year a student attends this school in grades 9 through 12. Our goal is to have students exceed this level for more thorough preparation for college.
Lakeside Christian School offers a College Preparatory Program designed to prepare students to meet requirements for most 2 or 4 year Colleges and Universities. We require students to complete their credits over 4 years with the Senior year requirement to include a minimum of 5 credits to graduate. LCS will consider deviations from graduation requirements only when there is a qualifying health issue approved by Administration that causes the credit level to drop to the minimum of 24 required by the State of Florida.
Parents and students are responsible for tracking their educational progress in meeting the school’s requirements for graduation.
