Jackson County Comprehensive High School has been approved by the Georgia Department of Education to offer the International Skills Diploma Seal. This recognition honors students who have selected courses with a global focus and serves as a “signal to employers and higher education institutions that a student is prepared to participate in the global economy” (Ga DOE). Students meet the requirements for this prestigious recognition if they meet academic and coursework requirements, including:
– 3 years of the same modern language
– 4 credits in courses with an international focus
– 4 extracurricular activities with a global focus
– 20 hours of community service that benefits the global community
1 capstone presentation showcasing global awareness.
This diploma seal alongside our forthcoming international baccalaureate (IB) programme* show that JCCHS is poised to prepare our students for not only national but also international opportunities.
