Benjamin Franklin High School


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.
