(previously referred to as “community service”)

Beech Grove High School is committed to the development of employability skills and civic engagement for all students as they meet this graduation requirement. Students may show growth in this development through numerous experiences, but please note caps on hours within each requirement. All students must achieve 80 points in order to be eligible for a diploma and to participate in commencement. Beech Grove High School will provide one day each semester during the school day for students to engage in activities that contribute to meeting this requirement. Options include:

  • Participation in career/college experiences (i.e. job shadowing, interning, college visits) [CAP AT 40 POINTS]
  • Participation in employability experiences [CAP AT 40 POINTS]
  • Participation in volunteer or civic engagement experiences [NO CAP]
  • Participation in extracurricular activity [CAP AT 40 POINTS]
  • Completion of a Senior Choice graduation experience [CAP AT 40 POINTS]
