Students who fulfill all the graduation requirements will receive a high school diploma from an accredited, private high school: Enlightium Academy.
The goal of Enlightium Academy is to prepare students to meet the 21st-century demands of their post-high school education, work, and personal lives. High school students are required to meet Enlightium’s graduation requirements in order to earn a diploma.
Enlightium Academy high school students who are pursuing an academic diploma must earn a minimum of 24 credits and a minimum 2.0 cumulative GPA on a 4.0 scale. See the grading scale for more information. Students who first enroll at EA during their senior year are required to complete at least 25% of the course work or take at least 3.5 credits in order to receive a diploma from EA; the student's counselor will assist in determining which courses need to be taken by the student. Since it is required for students to take a Bible course each year, students who attend Enlightium for four years of high school could earn a minimum of 24 credits. However, one or more Bible courses can be waived for part-time students, for students enrolling during the 4th quarter of any school year, and for other cases per the discretion of the counselor.
Seniors that meet Enlightium Academy graduation requirements and comply with their state homeschooling requirements or private school requirements (based on how their state or local school district superintendent defines accredited online high school diplomas) are accepted by most public and private universities nationwide because students are considered high school graduates without additional requirements. However, because some colleges and universities have unique admission requirements, we recommend consulting with your local school district’s superintendent and the college/university of your choice to determine what, if any, additional requirements exist in order to be considered a high school graduate. For example, some colleges have additional tests for students who did not sit in a traditional classroom environment in order to qualify for financial aid or may have specific testing requirements in order to be considered a high school graduate, such as in New York state.
