Earning an Ohio High School Diploma

Students must complete and earn a state minimum of 20 credits in specific subjects. Additionally, students also must receive instruction in economics and financial literacy and complete at least two semesters of fine arts. CEVS has additional graduation requirements that necessitate students earning 21 credits. Students are encouraged to meet with Natalie Kanney, High School Guidance Counselor, early in their high school career to ensure they are on the path to graduation in a timely manner.

Students in the classes of 2023 and beyond (those who entered grade 9 on or after July 1, 2019) are now required to meet a new set of graduation requirements. These new graduation requirements consist of three key components:

1. Course Completion
Students will satisfy Ohio’s curriculum requirements and any additional local requirements. Students will complete the state minimum 20 units, with specific units required in each content area.

2. Demonstrating Competency
Students will demonstrate competency in the foundational areas of English language arts and mathematics or through alternative demonstrations, which include College Credit Plus, career-focused activities, their ACT or SAT scores, or military enlistment.

3. Demonstrating Readiness (Seals)
Students will demonstrate readiness for their post-high school paths by earning two diploma seals that allow them to demonstrate important foundational and well-rounded academic and technical knowledge, professional skills, and leadership and reasoning skills.

Earn remediation-free scores in math and English language arts on the ACT or SAT. Ohio's university presidents set these scores, which are subject to change. Districts choose either the ACT or SAT. CEVS has chosen to administer the ACT. Students will take the ACT one time in the spring in grade 11 for free at school.

If you have questions about graduation requirements, please feel free to contact Mr. Jason Hemmelgarn, High School Principal or Natalie Kanney, High School Guidance Counselor.  You may also call the Ohio Department of Education at 614- 466-1317 or send an email to
