Beginning with the Class of 2016, the Nevada Department of Education published new and updated information regarding the transition from the Nevada High School Proficiency Exams (NHSPE) to the new End Of Course (EOC) Examinations including the new requirement of the ACT test. The table below summarizes the up-to-date testing requirements for the current series of graduating classes.
Counselors will assist students in planning their high school program and projecting this program toward long-term goals. However, the ultimate responsibility for the individual program must rest with both the student and parent. Therefore, when selecting courses, students are encouraged to consider both graduation and post-high school education or vocational entrance requirements.
For clarification purposes, a student will earn one credit for successful completion of a year-long (two semester) course. One-half credit is earned for successful completion of a semester course. The following subjects, shown in the gallery below, meet graduation requirements of Basic High School, the Clark County School District and the State of Nevada.
At Basic Academy, all students will be expected to meet the requirements of the 21st Century Course of Study (see gallery below). This program will prepare students for the following post-secondary opportunities: University/4-year college, Community/2-year college, Trade/Technical School or the general workforce. These additional requirements will align with the State of Nevada Millennium Scholarship criteria for core courses.
Basic Academy's Course Catalog provides complete details regarding all the courses offered at Basic.
Students may request copies of official and/or unofficial transcripts from the Office of the Registrar at Basic Academy using an online reuqest form. This service is currently free of charge. Requested copies may be picked up at the Registrar's Office. Please allow 1 business day for processing.
Students may also print their own copy of an unofficial transcript from the "Reports" tab when they are logged into their Infinite Campus accounts.
