All students will be enrolled in eight classes each semester. All students that enter EHS are scheduled into the CORE 40 curriculum. During their junior year the student, parents, principal, and school counselor may determine that a change to a REGULAR diploma is in the best interest of the student. This would be done during a meeting of those involved with documentation becoming part of the permanent CUM file record. This is not an option for freshmen and sophomores. The regular diploma has fewer required courses in some subject areas. Athletes must pass 6 courses during the preceding grading period or semester to be eligible for IHSAA athletic participation.
