For the past few years a state policy has allowed for high school seniors to graduate at the end of the fall semester if they have met all state and local graduations requirements and they choose to do so.
This school year, a total of 26 seniors from Carroll County opted to conclude their high school careers in December after meeting all credit requirements, and they are now officially graduates of the respective school districts, though they may still participate in graduation ceremonies at the end of the spring semester.
Huntingdon High School had seven early graduates, McKenzie High School had four, and West Carroll High School had 15. There were no early graduates at Hollow Rock-Bruceton Central or Clarksburg High Schools.
