American/ Bolivian Diploma
The Santa Cruz Cooperative School, SCCS, is accredited by AdvancED, and is recognized by the Bolivian Ministry of Education. SCCS’s academic program is college-preparatory, designed to prepare students for entry into colleges and universities in the United States, Latin America and virtually any other country in the world. Programs of study lead to two different diplomas: The American Diploma (equivalent to a US Diploma issued by accredited High Schools in the United States) and the Bolivian “Bachillerato en Humanidades”, required for entry into a Bolivian or other Latin American University. All SCCS students and transferring students, starting the 7th grade, are to pursue the Bolivian and the American High School Diploma. Students who transfer to SCCS from educational institutions in foreign countries need to provide all academic records acknowledged by the Bolivian Embassy of the respective host country in order to be granted the recognition of credits for the Bolivian and American High School Diploma. All students at SCCS must be enrolled in the Bolivian Diploma Program and the US Diploma Program. The subjects offered at all levels cover respective graduation requirements for both Diplomas.
