High School Graduation Requirements
High school students are required to meet Enlightium Academy graduation requirements in order to earn a diploma. The goal of Enlightium Academy is to prepare students to meet the 21st Century demands of their post-high school education, work, and personal lives.
Enlightium Academy seniors must earn a minimum of 21 credits* and a minimum 2.0 GPA on a 4.0 scale. Please note: since it is required for students to take a Bible course each year, students who attend EA for four years of high school should earn a minimum of 24 credits. Students who first enroll at EA during their senior year are required to complete at least 25% of the course work or take at least five credits in order to receive a diploma; the student's counselor will assist in determining which courses need to be taken by the student.
College preparatory students and students who are pursuing an honors diploma must meet the following requirements:
- Earn up to 24 credits*
- Take at least 4 credits of Math (senior year may overlap with Senior Year Math-Based Quantities coursework)
- Take 4 credits of English (with emphasis on writing and literature in 11th and 12th grades)
- Take up to 4 credits of History/Social Studies
- Take up to 4 credits of Science (two of which should be in a laboratory science: Biology, Chemistry, or Physics)
- Take 2 consecutive years of a World Language. World Language courses include reading, writing, speaking, and listening comprehension

Please note that the student’s counselor will confirm the final credits required for each student to graduate. In addition to the above requirements, these students must also meet the following GPA requirements:
- College preparatory students should have a minimum of 2.7 GPA on a 4.0 scale.
- Students who are pursuing an honors diploma should have a minimum of 3.5 GPA on a 4.0 scale.
