  • Do high school students have to be enrolled in your diploma program?

    No. Our High School Diploma Program is optional.

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

    Yes, but students must complete a minimum of one full semester with us and must be enrolled prior to age 20. If you're unsure of your child's high school plans, you're welcome to wait. We recommend you follow our graduation requirements in the meantime. Student must meet our eligibility requirements to be accepted into the program.

  • 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 to earn credit for a course without having to take the course or if they may enter or return to public school. Learn More

  • Will you need my child's high school transcripts?

    We will only need high school transcripts if your child is enrolled in our academic or diploma program. Learn More

  • Will my child receive a diploma?

    Students enrolled in our diploma program who meet our graduation requirements will receive a high school diploma. Learn More

  • Will my child be able to participate in a dual enrollment program?

    Maybe. Public colleges and universities are only required to enter into articulation agreements with private schools in their geographic area. However, if your local college will make an exception, or if your child will be attending a private college, and your child is enrolled in our High School Diploma Program, then they 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 academic and diploma programs. Students taking courses at FLVS are able to access their transcripts directly from FLVS. Learn More

  • Can we use our own curriculum?

    We do not require any specific high school curriculum. If your high school student is enrolled in our diploma program, however, coursework must be documented in accordance with our program policies. 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 colleges your student is considering attending to ensure they will be accepted for admission. See our Diploma Program Eligibility 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 will accept a student enrolled in umbrella school as a home educated student; some require the student to present a GED. We encourage you to reach out to prospective 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
