Early Graduation
Serious consideration by students and parents should be given to graduating in less than 4 years.  The "WHY" should make sense for you.
  • To start Post High School early?  Consider PSEO as described on the Educational Options page.
  • To Work?  The average person will spend at least 40-50 years in the work force and, without training, the job will most probably be low wage and tedious.
Upon completion of the question, should the answer be yes, follow these steps:
 
  1. Obtain an early graduation application from the Guidance Office
  2. Complete application with all required signatures
  3. All parts of the Ohio Graduation Test must be passed.
  4. You must have enough credits to fulfill graduation requirements and credits in the course of a normal school day and year.
Academic Recognition at Commencements
We believe it is important for universities to look carefully at the individual applicant to see beyond class designations, which can sometimes be skewed in a competitive high school like MHS.  Seniors will be honored at commencements based upon the following standards of academic achievement:
  • Valedictorians:  4.15 GPA** and above; 25 credits or more completed; 6 AP classes or more
  • Summa Cum Laude:  4.00 to 4.149 GPA**
  • Magna Cum Laude:  3.750 to 3.999 GPA**
  • Cum Laude:  3.500 to 3.749 GPA**
**GPA is computed on 7th Semester.  No more than two Valedictorians will be selected to speak at commencements.  Candidates will submit an application and speech to a panel of teachers who will make the selections.
