TREE Specific Graduation Requirements
Each year at TREE Academy, students are expected to take a weekly Life Skills class with our Human Development Department. The purpose of this class is for students to develop in their social emotional learning including but not limited to self-awareness, self-management, responsible decision making, social awareness, and relationship skills.
For one semester each year, students will take a weekly meditation class throughout their time at TREE Academy.
Every student at TREE is required to perform hours of community service. Middle School students are required to perform 10 hours of community service, and High School students are required to perform 30 hours.
TREE will offer various opportunities as well as on-campus tasks and chores to help students fulfill this requirement. However, students are encouraged to perform community service away from TREE and are only asked that it be verified by the foundation or organization for which our students gave community service hours. Community Service at TREE is a required activity and every student must fulfill their minimum required hours to be credited for the completion of that academic year.
