FAQs

Graduation

Can I graduate early?

Yes. Most years SC Whitmore School has several students that end up graduating high school early. Since you are able to complete courses at your own pace, including optional work on the weekends and over the summer, students are able to accelerate and complete high school in less than the traditional four years. We call these students our “flyers”, since they fly through high school.

Does SC Whitmore School have a traditional graduation ceremony?

Yes. SC Whitmore School organizes a traditional graduation ceremony each year (in late May) with caps, gowns, a guest speaker, etc. The ceremony is centrally located at the Columbia Metropolitan Convention Center in Columbia, SC. All students and parents are strongly encouraged to attend, in order to help celebrate the success of our graduating students.

How will I get my diploma?

If a student completes their graduation requirements prior to the graduation ceremony, we can send a transcript and letter of completion to colleges. Diplomas will be awarded at graduation.
