Graduation Requirements

Graduation is a function of Mile High Academy. The conferring of diplomas by the academy signifies the successful completion of at least 240 credits and the fulfillment of all other graduation requirements. Only students who have achieved this standard or have been granted permission by the faculty Committee, and who have fulfilled their financial obligations to the school may participate in graduation exercises. Diplomas will not be given out at graduation if a student has not successfully completed graduation requirements or if there is a balance due on the account. MHA staff will endeavor to counsel and assist students with academic problems. Seniors are responsible to confirm a passing grade in classes needed for
completion of graduation requirements.
