In accordance with the policies of the Commonwealth of Kentucky, the Diocese of Covington, and Newport Central Catholic, a student needs the following credits to graduate from NCC.
Theology—4.5 credits (Class of 2017), 4 credits (Class of 2018), 4 credits (Class of 2019)
Mathematics—3.5 credits (One class required during the senior year)
Social Studies—3 credits
Health & Physical Education—1 credit
Fine Arts—1 credit
Electives—Since study halls do not impact course credit, grades, or GPA, each semester a student is registered for a study hall would impact the elective credits required, as well as the total number of credits required to graduate. Some NCC electives are required in this count to graduate. Foreign language credits for the PCC are counted under this category.
12 credits (Class of 2017), 12.5 credits (Class of 2018), 12.5 credits (Class of 2019)
31 credits (Class of 2017)
31.5 credits (Class of 2018)
32 credits (Class of 2019)
As outlined in the student handbook (see link to this document below), a student must maintain a passing grade in each course to successfully achieve the objectives of and pass the course.
Newport Central Catholic students who successfully meet these NCC graduation requirements will usually meet the pre-college curriculum established by the Kentucky Council on Higher Education. However, students who are seriously considering college are advised to include at least two years of foreign language study, an additional one or two laboratory science courses, a fine arts course, and at least one trimester of computer education. College-bound students should have familiarity and experience with the computer’s potential beyond entertainment.
