The four standard required courses include:
Each of these courses is based upon a program of studies (POS) aligned with state and national standards. Virginia Standards of Learning (SOL) tests are administered at the end of the World History and Geography I, World History and Geography II, and Virginia and United States History courses.
In schools which offer Advanced Placement (AP) courses students can meet graduation requirements by enrolling in Advanced Placement (AP) United States History (11) and/or Advanced Placement (AP) U.S. Government (12).
In IB schools, students enrolled in International Baccalaureate(IB) programs would complete the following four courses to meet the four-credit requirement: World History II for IB Schools (9), Government for IB Schools (10), IB History: The Americas (11) and IB History 2: 20th Century Topics (12).
The choice of which electives a high school offers in a given year depends upon the program needs and interests of that school.
