Saint Paul Public Schools Graduation Credits for College and Career Readiness
Total Required Graduation Credits: 86
Starting with the graduating class of 2022, Saint Paul Public Schools (SPPS) will require 86 total credits to graduate from high school. This change aligns with the Minnesota Department of Education (MDE) graduation requirements as well as many Minnesota school districts, and supports the district’s aligned secondary schedules that go into effect next year (2022-23). This change does not impact the number of core credits needed for graduation. However, it does change the number of elective credits that students need to graduate to 20 credits. Students can and will be encouraged to take advantage of these opportunities beyond the minimum number of 20 elective credits. Read more.
