Documenting High School Coursework

Students enrolled in our High School Diploma Program must have all required English, math, science, and social studies courses, credits and grades documented on official school transcripts. Optional world language and American sign language courses, credits, and grades must also be documented on official school transcripts. Elective courses may be documented in a homeschool portfolio with credits and grades validated by a Florida teacher through a portfolio review.

Official School Transcripts

All required English, math, science, social studies, and optional world language and American sign language courses, credits and grades must be documented on official school transcripts. A transcript is a record of courses, credits and grades earned at a school. An official transcript is one that is sent directly from the administrator of the school where the credit is earned to our school. We accept transcripts from the following schools:

  • Florida Virtual School (FLVS)
  • Public Schools
  • Public Virtual Schools
  • Charter Schools
  • Accredited Private Schools
  • Community Colleges/Universities (Dual Enrollment)
  • Accredited Correspondence Schools (Distance Learning)

Credit by Portfolio

Elective courses taken through accredited homeschool programs or documented through homeschool portfolios may be eligible for high school credit. You must provide us with detailed course information for course pre-approval. Coursework must be documented thoroughly, and credits and grades must be validated by a Florida certified teacher unless otherwise exempted. Credit is subject to final approval.


  • Up to 8 elective credits, excluding credits in world languages and American sign language, may be earned through portfolio reviews.
  • Credit may not duplicate a credit already earned.
  • Course must conform to a high school level course found at CPALMS.
  • Course must include bona fide instruction and contain performance standards.

Documenting Coursework

Please download our Credit by Portfolio Packet for the required forms. Instructions are included. We recommend you keep at minimum a chronological log of activities, a detailed list of books and resources used, samples of your student's work, test results, and earned certificates in your student's portfolio. For books and workbooks, keep copies of the title page and table of contents. For online curriculum, keep copies of the course's scope and sequence and printouts of your student's progress, grades, and time logs. You do not need to provide samples of your student's work to us.
