High School Specific Questions
May my child take courses at Florida Virtual School?
Yes. High school students may take online courses at Florida Virtual School (FLVS) when enrolled in our school. Learn More
Do your high school students have to take statewide assessments?
No. Students are not required to take Florida Standards Assessments (FSA) or Next Generation Sunshine State Standards (NGSSS) assessments, including End-of-Course (EOC) assessments. Students may take EOC assessments, if desired, and should take them if they may enter or return to public school. Learn More
Can my child complete two grade levels in one year?
Yes. As the supervisor of your child's instruction, you decide the rate at which your child advances, but students must be re-enrolled upon completion of each grade level. Learn More
Will you need my child's high school transcripts?
We will only need your child's transcripts if your child is enrolling in our High School Diploma Program. Students enrolled under our Standard Enrollment option do not need to submit transcripts. Learn More
Do high school students have to be enrolled in your High School Diploma Program?
No. Our High School Diploma Program is optional. Students in grades 9–12 may be enrolled in our High School Diploma Program or under our Standard Enrollment option.
For your student to "graduate" from a home education program, you must establish a home education program with your district school. Students enrolled at Aspiring Heights Academy are private school students.
Will my child receive a diploma?
Students enrolled in our High School Diploma Program who meet our graduation requirements are eligible to receive a high school diploma. Students enrolled in our High School Diploma Program who are unable to document their core high school coursework on official transcripts may be eligible to receive a Certificate of Completion. Learn More
Will my child be able to participate in a dual enrollment program?
Probably not. Public colleges and universities are only required to enter into articulation agreements with private schools in their geographic area, and they can charge private schools for their students' dual enrollment tuition. However, if 1 your local college will make an exception, and 2 your child is enrolled in our High School Diploma Program, 3 can satisfy any course prerequisites, and 4 can meet the college's eligibility requirements, your child will be able to participate in a dual enrollment program. Learn More
Do you provide transcripts?
We will maintain and provide transcripts for students enrolled in our High School Diploma Program. Learn More
Can we use our own curriculum such as Abeka, SOS, Time4Learning, or Sonlight?
If your child is in grades 9-12 and is NOT enrolled in our high school diploma program, then you may use any curriculum you choose. Students seeking an Aspiring Heights Academy high school diploma must have all core courses, credits and grades documented on official high school transcripts. (Students enrolled in our High School Diploma Program who have high school credits documented on accredited homeschool program transcripts or through homeschool portfolios may be eligible to receive a Certificate of Completion.)
