Early Graduation and Option II Graduation

In accordance with N.J.A.C. 6A:8-5.2(e), a state-endorsed high school diploma will be awarded early to any currently enrolled student who has met the State Standardized testing graduation requirements in all sections of an applicable High School Competency Assessment; has presented official transcripts showing at least 30 general education credits leading to a degree at an accredited institution of higher education; and has formally requested an early award of a state-endorsed high school diploma. The diploma will bear the date of issuance. The student may be permitted to participate in graduation ceremonies with his/her classmates without formal readmission to the school district on application to and approval of the high school principal. Students interested in graduating early should speak with their school counselor by October 31 of junior year so a plan can be developed to achieve this goal.

Students will receive instruction by their high school teachers who meet community college teaching requirements. Students enrolled in approved dual enrollment courses will earn college credits documented on a Warren County Community College transcript.

Students who earn a grade of 73 or better in an approved dual enrollment course will receive college credit. Grades and credits will be recorded on a permanent Warren County Community College transcript. By enrolling in a dual enrollment course, you implicitly permit North Warren to share your student's grades data, relevant to the dual enrollment program, with Warren County Community College.
