* All students are required to successfully complete four units of Science in order to meet graduation requirements as set by the Georgia Board of Regents. Wesleyan will post a high school credit for successful completion of Earth or Physical Science taken the the 8th grade, and the student will then have to successfully complete three additional science units in grades nine through twelve. If a student does not take, or successfully complete, Earth or Physical Science in the 8th grade, he/she will have to earn four units of science in grades nine through twelve in order to graduate.

† These requirements represent the minimum qualifications for graduation. Most Wesleyan students take more than the minimum and are encouraged to do so.

The Wesleyan program fulfills the requirements of the College Preparatory Curriculum established by the Board of Regents as standards for admission to Georgia junior colleges, senior colleges, and research universities.
