Graduate early from high school?

Hi. Can anyone please link me to FCPS documents, policies or anything written regarding the ability for a student to graduate early? My freshmen student has an early birthday, so will be 18 at onset of senior year and looking into the feasibility of graduating at the end of Junior year to join a (semi)professional art troop for a year before heading into college (on time) with peers.

Student entered 9th grade with 4 credits already toward graduation so it is do-able. But is it permitted? Does the individual high school have the final approval or is there a mandate that addresses this county wide?

Also, if your student has had this experience recently, please weigh in on how you structured the course load. Counselor has told us that certain classes (even though they do not have pre-requisites and are not sequential) are reserved for students in specific grades only. How to get around that?
TIA

Two words: Gap Year. Have your child graduate high school in four years. During the child's senior year the child applies for college allowing the child to have three years plus of results and activities for colleges to consider rather than two. When the child gets in then let the child take a gap year before starting. If the idea of graduating college bothers the child, pursuing the dual enrollment option in high school could give the child a head start.

gerrymanderer2 (OP) posts several lies on ffu daily - many\.10think he's a fx co gov worker who is getting paid to do it for false DNC democrat "advertising". he floods ffu with useless posts to bump down major news, posts fecal matter, mutilated bodies, child porn, foreign drug ads and sneaker ads, tells people to kill themselves and government should seize them and put them on psych pills in prison - decided by democrat gov of course, promotes kangaroo courthouse trials, gives anti-religious rants, gives satanic ritual rants, posts black males with large dicks on white young females, portends white low birth rate and fall of USA, food tampering/poisoning, and anything possible to DEMORALIZE white people on ffu. (perhaps a chinese prisoner or isis member - but definitely knowledgeable of fx co gov from the inside at times). the website operator has told him "not to post or return" which are still posted - not removed, by the sysop: not because of a political leaning but for continual illegal and gross spam along with messages that are only to demoralize if not kill others. he/she plays at financial terrorism as well: continuall reporting false financial data, and fake emergency please from (fake members of the community he makes up)

G2 is trying to provoke feelings of poor moral, F, in those who view FFU who didn't find asshole HS/NOVA teachers slow pace and absurd tests interesting

the post above is a fake, no one who is in that position would ask FFU for the answer

G2 CAN DROP DEAD

Duel enrollment is only transferable to NOVA. NOVA, where the N is for knowledge.

I was pretty surprised to find out that so many students these days use writing services. Certainly, there are cheap writing services that anyone can afford but there are also very expensive services. You should have a look at this list https://www.essayuniverse.net/best-essay-writing-services/ to find a cheap one that is good enough.

I seldom agree with other people, but today they are right. No need to push your kid so much. He/she may lose motivation in the end, just because the pace is too quick, and fail the finals. So why don't you just celebrate the birthday for a day as other people do and then ask your kid to study argumentative topics? You know, sometimes a wish to graduate fast comes when a student has difficulties in it, but feels shy to tell you.
