CLEP Exams (College Level Examination Program) are offered throughout the year at each of the Lafourche Parish High Schools since no "set date" is mandated by the College Board. These exams earn your student college credit at most Louisiana colleges and universities. These tests are computer-based and in most cases, students find out their scores immediately.

Diploma Paths

With a College and Career Diploma, students can opt for one of two courses of study – the more rigorous LA Core 4 or the Basic Core. Students can also earn an Academic Endorsement or a Career/Technical Endorsement.

2017 - 2018 Graduation Requirements


2018 Graduates & Beyond:

Beginning with the graduating class of 2018, students will choose one of two paths towards a high school diploma. The traditional "college route" will be known as the TOPS University Diploma and the updated and more rigorous "career route" will be known as the Jump Start TOPS Tech Career Diploma. Under the guidance of school counselors, teachers, and parents, students will opt-in to one of these diploma pathways at the end of their sophomore year.

The TOPS University Diploma will prepare a student for post-secondary work at a college or university. This diploma is also directly aligned with the TOPS University Scholarship, meaning that all graduates earning this diploma will have taken the courses necessary for the award. 

The Jump Start TOPS Tech Career Diploma culminates Louisiana’s innovative career and technical education (CTE) program, Jump Start. 
Students electing to pursue this diploma will be prepared to lead productive adult lives, capable of continuing their education after high school while earning certifications in high-wage career sectors. Students are required to attain industry-promulgated, industry-valued credentials in order to graduate with a Career Diploma in one of the state's 47 approved Jump Start pathways.


After School Programs

Each of our high schools has numerous after school activities for students. These include tutoring, credit recovery, ACT prep, and several other non-academic activities in which students may participate. Snacks and bus transportation are provided free to all participants.
