The Alabama High School Graduation Exam will be given this summer during the week of July 7-11, 2014. The exam will be given at Cherokee County High School and will begin each day at 8:00 AM. If you have not passed a part of the exam and would like to take it this summer, you will need to call or email the counselor at the school you attended to sign up for the exam. Per Alabama State Department of Education guidelines, the graduation exam is required for all students who were first time 9th graders in 2009-10 or earlier to receive an Alabama high school diploma. Students must have completed all coursework and received all of their credits in order to be eligible to take the exam. Eligibility will be checked and verified by each school counselor prior to testing.

Though not required, any student who was a first time 9th grader in 2010-11 or later, may continue taking the test if he/she has a “failed” or “not attempted” status on his/her transcript for any part of the test.

IMPORTANT – In order to take the graduation exam this summer, you must call or email the counselor at the school you attended at least two weeks prior to the exam to sign up for the exam.
