Graduation Information
Students enrolled in the Global Academy must meet Gilbert Public School District's graduation requirements in order to receive a diploma. 
New Graduation Requirement

In the spring of 2015, the Arizona legislature passed the American Civics Act (House Bill 2064). This bill requires students, beginning with the graduating class of 2017, to pass a civics test based on the United States Immigration and Naturalization civics questions. Students are required to score 60% or higher in order to graduate from high school or obtain a high school equivalency certificate.  More information on this requirement can be found by clicking  HERE .
