Now Enrolling for Spring 2021

Student Re-Enrollment

Students are re-enrolled annually and with each grade change (whichever comes first). Enrollment is open to Florida students in grades K–12 through age 19. Students age 19 and older may continue their enrollment status to complete their coursework. Students must complete all coursework prior to their 21st birthday. Choose the program that meets your child's educational goals. Our diploma program is optional. As a reminder, students enrolled in our diploma program must document all core courses, credits, and grades on official transcripts.

Steps to Re-Enroll

2 Send us the required documentation and payment.

  • Do high school students have to be enrolled in your High School Diploma Program?

    No. Our High School Diploma Program is optional.

  • Can my child be enrolled in the diploma program at any time?

    Yes. If you're unsure of your student's high school plans, you're welcome to wait. We recommend you follow our graduation requirements in the meantime. Student's enrolled in our diploma program must complete a minimum of one full semester at Aspiring Heights Academy.

  • Do high school students have to take statewide assessments?

    No. Private and home educated 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 want to take EOC assessments if they may enter or return to public school. 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 Program do not need to submit transcripts. Learn More

  • Will my child receive a diploma?

    Students enrolled in our High School Diploma Program who meet our graduation requirements will receive a high school diploma. Students 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. Current dual enrollment laws discriminate against private school students. Public colleges and universities are only required to enter into articulation agreements with private schools in their geographic area, and they can (and do) charge private schools for their students' dual enrollment tuition. However, if your local college will make exceptions, and your child is enrolled in our High School Diploma Program, then he or she may be able to participate in a dual enrollment program. Learn More

  • Do you provide transcripts?

    We maintain and provide transcripts for students enrolled in our High School Diploma Program. Learn More

  • Can we use our own curriculum?

    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 in our High School Diploma Program must have all core courses, credits and grades documented on official high school transcripts. Students who have high school credits documented on accredited homeschool program transcripts or through homeschool portfolios may be eligible to receive a Certificate of Completion. Learn More

  • Will my child be accepted into college?

    We cannot guarantee college acceptance. Many colleges and universities require applicants who complete a home education program or graduate from a non-accredited high school to submit portfolios and/or transcripts from their originating sources to be considered for admission. Additionally, the acceptance of diplomas and transcripts from private schools (whether accredited or not) is subject to the requirements of the receiving institution. If you will be enrolling your high school student into our diploma program, we encourage you to reach out to potential colleges to ensure they will accept your child for admission. See our High School Diploma page for more information.

    If you will not be enrolling your high school student into our diploma program, keep in mind that students enrolled at Aspiring Heights Academy are private school students, not home educated students as defined in s. 1002.41. Some colleges require students applying as home educated students to provide district verification that they completed a home education program. Some colleges accept students completing high school under an umbrella school as home educated students, but some do not. Your child may need to earn a GED. We encourage you to reach out to potential colleges to find out what their admission requirements are.

  • Will my child be eligible for a Bright Futures Scholarship?

    Provided specific scholarship eligibility requirements are met, students graduating with an Aspiring Heights Academy diploma are eligible for Bright Futures Scholarships. Learn More
