Graduation Requirements
To be eligible for graduation, high school students must accumulate at least 22 course credits. However, this number is only a minimum. Courses that meet daily for a full year earn one credit. Courses that meet every other day for a full year or every day for one semester earn one half credit. Every student must be enrolled in 6 credits each semester per year.

Of the 22 credits required for graduation, students must complete the following core distribution:
Graduation Requirements
Although not required for graduation, students are strongly encouraged to study a World Language. Most four year colleges require a minimum of two years in the same language; more selective colleges may require 3 or 4 years in the same language.

Additional requirements include the completion of a 40 hour Community Service Project and Passing grades on the  English, Math and Science sections of the MCAS test. Ninth graders take the Introductory Physics Science MCAS in the spring. Tenth graders take the English and Math MCAS in the spring. Students who fail any of these tests will repeat the individual test in grades 10, 11 and/or 12 until they receive a passing grade. In addition, any student who receives a Needs Improvement in English or Math will be placed on an EPP (an efficiency plan) that will require four years ofEnglish or Math as well as a passing grade in the course and final exam.

The Bromfield School does not rank its students because of its size, academic rigor and its college preparatory orientation.
