Credits

To satisfy the requirements for a diploma from Don Bosco Cristo Rey High School, a student must earn the required number of credits, must pass all courses, and must cooperate with all school policies, rules & regulations.

A credit is defined as a completed unit of study. An hour of work is the equivalent of 55 minutes of class time (often called a “contact hour”). A minimum of 220 hours of work by each student is required for each unit of credit. Ordinarily, a course must cover a year-long period for every unit of credit given.

1 credit = 1 full year course; ½ credit = semester course
