Family Info Sessions for Act 158 – Mar 22, Apr 19, May 17

Posted by School District of Philadelphia on March 14, 2023

Graduating from high school ready for success in college, career and life is an important milestone for your child. No matter your child’s age, it is never too early to start supporting their path toward graduation success!

What Is Act 158?

The Pennsylvania Department of Education (PDE) has introduced statewide Pathways to Graduation — expanded high school graduation requirements that are currently planned to go into effect beginning this 2022-2023 school year.

This means that in addition to the 23.5 credits and service learning project previously required to graduate, high school students graduating from a Pennsylvania high school starting this school year must meet additional requirements through one of five pathways designed to illustrate their college, career and community readiness.

Each of the five pathways offers a different combination of options that can serve to fulfill the additional graduation requirements.
