Graduation Programs

Our dual credit program allows students to earn college credits while completing their high school requirements. By the time students are finished with IQA, they will have earned enough credits that would qualify them for highly selective colleges and universities. The table below outlines the minimum mandatory credits for high school graduation at IQA, which is aligned with the requirements for the State of Texas.

*Most of our students exceed the Texas requirements with more high school credits, especially in the fine arts, LOTE, and elective areas.

**If new students transfer to IQA in senior year, their transcript will be evaluated for transferrable credits and they will be required to have only 2 credits of Alim/Hifz/Qir'aa if they have met the requirements for Fine Art and Elective.
