Twenty-four units of credit above the eighth grade, including one credit of Bible for every year at RC Christian School, as a minimum, is required for graduation. Seniors are required to take a minimum of five credits, of which four must be taken at RC Christian School.   A candidate for graduation must have been in attendance at RC Christian School for at least two semesters, the second of which is the last semester of the graduating year.
