3 options for completing language requirements. Credits are needed for both FCS graduation and Bright Futures Scholarship eligibility.
- FCS Spanish course. Spanish 1 and 2 are offered as elective courses at FCS. This is the easiest way to get it done.
- FLVS online courses. This option takes care of both the language and online requirements. Online language courses are designed to last a whole school year. Both segments of the course are required to receive credit. Completing segments during the summer makes it easier to manage. Many students find it hard to keep up with their regular school coursework and complete the weekly assignments required by FLVS
- Spanish CLEP test: This is a Spanish proficiency test that is completed at Miami Dade College. Both high school and college credit are awarded if the student receives a passing score. Credit for both years of Spanish may be awarded if the target score is achieved. Practice test information may be requested from Mrs. Frometa email@example.com
80 service hours are required to graduate from FCS. Students may begin acquiring these hours as soon as they complete the 8th grade. The Bright Futures Scholarship requires 75 hours to be eligible for the Medallion scholarship and 100 hours to be eligible for the Academic scholarship.
Students are required to take at least one college entrance test before they graduate. The best time to start preparing is the summer before 11th grade, but some choose to begin earlier. FCS English and Math curriculums are designed to prepare students for college entrance testing.
Practice tests hosted by Revolution Prep are offered several times a year on campus. Click here to learn more.
