To Parents and Students:
High School is an exciting time to explore career options and discover your aptitudes and passions. Each
student has chosen a career pathway and course selections will reflect your student’s choice. This guide
is designed to assist you in making the best possible decisions to get you where you want to be on your
career path as you complete high school. With the number of dual credit (meaning your student
earns college credit and high school credit) and certification programs available at Warsaw
Community High School and Warsaw Area Career Center your student can leave prepared to
complete college or go right in to the work force at a higher level than others competing for the
Parents have a responsibility to each student to be very certain all state and local requirements are met
for graduation. Specific requirements are explained on the following pages.
EARLY GRADUATION (application required by February 24th)
The intent of an early graduation would be to allow a student to exit Warsaw Community High School
to pursue college, technical school or the military early. Early graduation may occur in six or seven
semesters. A student must apply for early graduation by completing an application which is available in
the Counseling office. This form must be submitted to the student’s counselor prior to February
24, 2018. The building principal will review these applications along with the counselor. The student
will be informed of the decision as to whether early graduation is granted. Graduating in six semesters
will require summer school and/or correspondence classes depending on the student’s diploma type. It
is wise to weigh carefully whether graduating early will actually benefit the student. A student can
complete a year’s worth of college classes at a greatly reduced cost by remaining in high school and
pursuing dual credit and AP classes.
