HISD Graduation Labs

    Traditional Graduation Labs are recommended at all comprehensive high schools. Free online high school courses are available to HISD students through HISD Graduation Labs. Students can work on their courses during, before or after school, as well as from home or anywhere with an Internet connection. Students complete coursework in a computer-lab setting, with a Graduation Coach or lab monitor to facilitate as needed.  Students are able to complete courses through the graduation lab for:
    • Credit Recovery
    • Original Credit
    • Advanced Placement


    The graduation lab also offers opportunities for accelerated credit recovery if certain criteria are met. For more information on this program, speak to the Campus Graduation Coach or School Guidance Counselor.
