The graduation requirements vary depending on what year you will graduate from high school. See the attached document below for information on the requirements.
Attention Parent(s)/Guardian(s) of Seniors
Seniors will be asked to complete this survey DURING their 12th grade PCCR meeting. Counselors will use the responses to share valuable individualized information with the students throughout their Senior year. You do not need to have them complete it at home, as they will complete it in the Counseling Office during their Senior PCCR meeting. We are simply providing it here for you to look through, if you would like. Survey can be found here.

Canyons School District also offers Honors and Advanced Diplomas. In order to apply for an Advanced or Honors diploma, print and complete the applications for the Honors or Advanced diplomas. Completed applications are due to Mrs. J in room B102, next to Counseling Center.
