Civics Test Graduation Requirement
CIVICS TEST GRADUATION REQUIREMENT: In 2015, Arizona legislature passed the American Civics Act which requires students in the graduating class of 2017 and beyond to pass a civics test. Students are given this test for the first time in 8th grade and if passed, are not required to take it again.
If a student does not pass this first time, that’s okay! We will offer additional opportunities throughout high school to ensure that students meet this graduation requirement by the end of their senior year. Please use the Civics Test Manual and Study Guide to prepare for this exam.
