Things to Consider...
1. Earning world language credit is not a high school graduation requirement. However, most all 4-year colleges/universities do require students to have taken, at a minimum, 2 levels of the same World Language (ex: Spanish I and Spanish II). Best practice is to check with the schools you plan on applying to!
2. If you want to be eligible for HOPE or Zell Miller Scholarship, one of the requirements is that you need to have taken 4 HOPE Rigor Courses by graduation.
