Courses

Twenty-four (24) units of credit are required for graduation from Ben Franklin High School.  

We require a minimum of five academic courses for freshmen, sophomores and juniors: usually one each in language arts, mathematics, science, social studies and a world language. Although we do accommodate students who attend the New Orleans Center for Creative Arts (NOCCA) by allowing them to take only four courses at Franklin each year.  

We recommend that you plan all of your units through to graduation.
