Course Load & Attendance Requirements 

All students, grades 9-12, are required to attend classes the full 8-block schedule. Freshmen and Sophomores must carry 8 classes for credit. Juniors and Seniors must carry a minimum of 7 classes for credit. Transfer students may be scheduled with fewer classes depending on their time of enrollment. Every student at Beech Grove High School will follow a locally created pathway to ensure an in-depth exploration into college and career opportunities. Freshmen will enroll in Preparing for College & Careers. Students each year will work with their school counselor and iSucceed Advisor to select directed electives that best align with their current chosen pathway to provide experiences and enrichment in each students’ interests

EARLY GRADUATION: The Indiana Department of Education has stated that, if all requirements are met, a student may graduate prior to their 8th semester. Any Beech Grove student wishing to graduate after early must make this known to his/her counselor when senior schedules are completed in the spring of the junior year. Arrangements will have to be made to take one semester of senior English at another site as both semesters of senior English are not available first semester. Students wishing to complete high school early will be required to submit an application that will be reviewed by the Guidance Council.

NOTE: We will always try to be flexible in dealing with extenuating circumstances, but the only way students may be assured of the privilege of graduating early is to plan ahead and make these arrangements prior to the beginning of their senior year.
