Steps to Enroll

1 Choose an enrollment option.

2 Send us the required documentation and payment.

3 Watch your inbox for our enrollment confirmation email.

We will attach an attendance recording form to your confirmation email. Please see our Notification FAQs for who you may need to notify of your child's enrollment at Aspiring Heights Academy.

  • Do I have to notify anyone that I am enrolling my child in your school?

    If your child is not enrolled in any Florida home education program, public school, or private school, then you do not need to notify anyone of your educational choice to enroll your child in our school.

    Students enrolled at Aspiring Heights Academy are private school students–not homeschool students as defined in s. 1002.41. You do not send a notice of intent to establish a home education program to your district school superintendent if you enroll your child in our school.

  • Who do I notify if my child is enrolled in a public school?

    If your child is currently enrolled as a public school student, then you will need to withdraw your child from the public school. Your district school will have a form for you to complete. They will ask where your child is going so that they can assign the appropriate withdrawal code. Make sure you specify that your child is (or will be) enrolled in a private school, not a home education program.

    Some schools prefer that parents withdraw their children before enrolling them into another school, some schools prefer that parents withdraw their children after enrolling them into another school, and some schools don't have a preference. In any case, be sure to formally withdraw your child in a timely manner to avoid any potential truancy issues. (See Florida Statute 1003.26)

  • Who do I notify if my child is enrolled in a private school?

    If your child is currently enrolled in another private school, you will need to formally withdraw your child from the other school. Your school may have a particular policy regarding this, but you should only need to provide them with something in writing stating that you are withdrawing your child.

  • Who do I notify if my child is registered as a homeschooler with our district school?

    If you are homeschooling in Florida, that is you sent your district school superintendent a notice of intent to establish a home education program, then you must send them a termination notice, along with your child's annual evaluation, within 30 days of your child's enrollment at Aspiring Heights Academy. Your district school may have a form you can download, or you can download a termination notice here. (The requirement to include your child's annual evaluation with your termination notice was added to s. 1002.41(1)(c) in 2018.)

The Florida Department of Health and most Florida private healthcare providers issue Form DH 3040, School Entry Health Exam. If you recently moved from another state, your child's examination form may be different. Your child's school-entry health examination form will be accepted as long as it was completed by a health care provider licensed to perform physical examinations in the state in which it was performed. Your child's school-entry health examination must be performed within one year of your child's enrollment date. Your child shall be exempted from this requirement upon written request stating objections to the examination on religious grounds.

Certification of Immunization
All private schools are required to have on file a valid Form DH 680, Certification of Immunization or Form DH 681, Religious Exemption from Immunization. The DH 680 form is completed by Florida county health departments and  private healthcare providers. The DH 681 form is issued ONLY by Florida county health departments. If you recently moved to Florida from another state, you must have your child's vaccination history, if any, transferred to the Florida form. No other immunization records can be accepted. Your child shall be exempted from this requirement upon objection in writing that the administration of immunizing agents conflicts with your religious tenets or practices. Please read our article on vaccines and immunizations for more information.
