    NJ State Graduation Requirements  

    Somerville High School is a comprehensive high school with a single curriculum.  This means that while there are certain courses required for graduation for all students, many of the subjects are elected by the student.  To a large extent the courses selected determine the type of post-high school opportunities available to the student.  The Somerville Board of Education mandates a minimum of 120 credits for graduation.  Each student is required to carry a minimum of 35 credits per year to maximize his/her educational program.
