    The Cherry Creek School District continues its strong tradition of a rigorous academic program to prepare you for college and career success. Your middle school experience exposed you to goal setting and career exploration as it prepared you for the academic demands at high school. 

    You can track progress toward graduation in Power School or by scheduling a meeting with your school counselor. At the end of the school year, a freshman student, typically has successfully completed a minimum of 6 to 7 credits, a sophomore, 11 credits and a junior 17 credits. 

    To earn a high school diploma from any Cherry Creek District high school, all students must earn a minimum of 22 credits in specific content areas as well, meet competency in Reading/Writing/Communicating and mathematics, which demonstrates career/college preparedness.
