Benefits of an Advanced Regents Diploma?
- All students that are capable should aspire to the Advanced Regents diploma, regardless if you are going to college or trade school.
- It is only three more rigorous high school classes.
- It can save college tuition (language requirements could be waived which opens the college schedule for a course toward a minor or dual major).
- It is a higher level of achievement and more college preparatory.
The Advanced Diploma requires successful completion of additional Regents or local exams:
- three units of local LOTE (Language Other Than English)
- two Science Regents exams, one of which must include Biology
- Algebra, Geometry, and Algebra 2 Regents exams.
- A five-unit sequence in fine arts, business, or career and technical education, may replace the three-unit LOTE sequence of an Advanced Diploma.
With Honors: Students who achieve a 90% average on 8 Regents exams will earn an Advanced Regents diploma “With Honors” designation.
