State Assessments

A student must score proficient or above on the Keystone Exams: Algebra I, English Literature (Grade 10), and Biology in order to graduate. The Keystone Exams are end-of-course assessments and will be considered a stand-alone graduation requirement; therefore, they will not be calculated into the final grade.

Should a student not demonstrate proficiency on a Keystone Exam, the student will be required to participate in a supplemental instructional program mandated by the Pennsylvania Department of Education. A student will retake the Keystone exam up through and including the student’s junior year of high school.
