• Civics Exam Graduation Requirement

    All students who attend public school in the state of Idaho are required to take and pass the Civics Exam before they graduate. We encourage students who attend CHS to take this exam as early in the school year as possible. (Our students who are enrolled in Government classes on our campus will take this exam in December). 

    If you do not take Government on our campus (IDLA students, NIC students, etc.) you will need to come to CHS during the following testing windows to complete this exam. See below for study guides. The requirement is to pass this exam with a 60% or higher. This is a graduation requirement, please don't wait until the end of the year to complete this assessment.

    Questions? Please contact your counselor for more information. Thank you!
