GRADUATION REQUIREMENTS
Truman has a one-year residency requirement in order to fulfill career pathway goals and allow time for skill building in reading and mathematics. To meet graduation requirements, all incoming students must earn 21 total credits in the following areas: 4 English credits, 3 Math credits, 3 Science credits, 3 Social Science credits, 1 credit in PE/Health Education, 1 credit in Fine Arts/Foreign Language, 1 credit in Vocational/Career Education, 5 Elective Credits.
Additionally, students must show growth in reading and math on their STAR assessment.        

EARN DOUBLE THE CREDITS: COLLEGE AND/OR CAREER READY   

Students have the opportunity to earn double high school credits and college credit at the same time. To earn college credit, students must take the SAT or the CCC Placement exam and score high enough to be accepted into entry level courses, i.e. English 101 and/or Math 118 or 125. These college courses are at no cost to the student.                    

FLEXIBLE SCHEDULING:  SCHOOL-TO-WORK PROGRAM
Truman Middle College offers an opportunity for flexible schedule to students needing employment while completing their high school diploma. Students enrolled in the School-to-Work program can leave school as early as 12:00PM or as late as 2:20PM based on their work schedule to report to their job site.  Students must provide the following information to be approved for this program:
1. Work schedule
2. Pay check stub
3. School-to-Work form completed by student and signed by supervisor
        

GUARANTEED ADMISSION TO COLLEGE: POST-SECONDARY SUPPORT
One thing Truman is proud of is its post-secondary support for students. Truman currently has a post-secondary 
team that works diligently to ensure all potential graduates have achieved their post-secondary goals. Each student will be afforded the opportunity to visit a college/university, learn how to interview for a job, sit with a college advisor to build a schedule and education plan, and prepare for their senior portfolio. ​​At Truman Middle College, every student is guaranteed admission and post-secondary support at any City College of Chicago.
