FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

>

Am I going to graduate?

To be awarded a diploma, a student must successfully fulfill all the academic and financial (tuition, fees, etc.) requirements of Bishop Guertin High School and the graduation requirements of the State of New Hampshire. Because these requirements are designed to meet state law, there is no appeal of failed courses, so students must be mindful of academic performance. In addition, any serious violation of the code of conduct during the last quarter of school may result in the loss of all graduation-related activities.   

 

Will any of these events be Live Streamed?

End-of-year events, including Senior Award Ceremony and Graduation will be live-streamed through the school’s social media accounts
