Early Graduation Early graduation rushes students through an important process and does not allow the JCP staff to spend adequate time helping students develop into the leaders that our school mission promises. Therefore early graduation is not recommended at JCP. However, early graduation will be considered under rare circumstances and only after a written request is presented to the principal one calendar year before the proposed early graduation.
