High School Diploma

high school diploma

To receive an Enlightium high school diploma, students need to earn a minimum of 21–24 credits between grades 9-12, depending on which year they enrolled at EA and if they are working toward a standard or a preparatory/honors diploma. Credits previously earned from another traditional school or homeschool program will transfer to Enlightium Academy based on our credit transfer policy. However, at least four credits must be earned at Enlightium Academy in order to receive a diploma. The student's counselor will assist in determining which courses need to be taken by the student.

There is a $50 diploma fee for students in their final year at Enlightium Academy. If the prepayment option is chosen, the $50 fee will be added to the tuition. If the monthly payment plan is chosen, the $50 fee will be divided evenly among the monthly payments. The diploma fee is $100 for international students. Once the student meets all of the graduation requirements, a physical diploma will be created and shipped to the address provided.
