Students, who cannot graduate within two years because of credit deficiency, may be offered an alternative means to graduate as described in Education Code 51225.3. Some students may attend specifically to increase their English/Language arts and math skills to improve their employability and/or prepare them for other post-secondary education such as community college or a career college.

Most traditional high schools require 230 to 290 units of credit to graduate from high school. At Big Picture, we follow the minimum of 170 units of credits to receive a High School Diploma from the CTC Program.
