Here is information from the Texas Education Agency about graduation.

Foundation High School Program

The Foundation High School Program with endorsements is a flexible program that allows students to pursue their interests.

It is the default graduation program for students who entered high school in the 2014-15 school year or later.

The program contains up to four parts:


  • A 22-credit foundation plan which is the core of the Texas high school diploma program
  • Five endorsement options that allow students to focus on a related series of courses
  • A higher performance category called Distinguished Level of Achievement
  • Performance Acknowledgments that note outstanding achievement in specific areas
