Diploma Requirements

A fully enrolled student at Middleburg Academy takes five academic courses each semester in addition to at least one elective course each semester for a total of six classes per semester.  The departmental requirements in Art and Computer Science will satisfy a portion of that elective study.  A minimum of twenty-four credits is required for graduation.  

Middleburg Academy is a college preparatory school and the expectation is that each of our students will matriculate to a four-year college or university.
