Graduation requires a total of 25.5 credits beginning in Grade 9. A credit is a year's work in a subject meeting 6, 7, or 8 times in a cycle accompanied by home assignments. In addition, over four years students are required to complete one hundred hours (25 hours per year) of service outside of school to fulfill graduation requirements.
Fontbonne Academy implemented a service program in 1996 to give students an opportunity to learn more about their faith, to put their faith into action by working for justice in our world, and to reflect on their experiences. The Office of Mission & Ministry oversees the service program.
