Florida state legislature has minimal regulations for private school students. Enlightium Academy meets the existing state requirements and has high standards in areas where state law may have none, such as teacher certification and organization accreditation.
Similarly to the GED and HiSET exams, the TASC exam (Test Assessing Secondary Completion), is a high school equivalency test.
In the vast majority of cases, students should pursue a high school diploma; earning a diploma typically results in higher wages as an adult and lets employers know that the worker can overcome a challenge. However, for teenagers who are at least 16 years of age, not currently enrolled in any high school, and do not have a high school diploma, the TASC may be available.
Parents choose to withdraw their children from public school for a variety of reasons: families want their students to receive a faith-based education, students need more flexibility to pursue their studies in their own time, parents have safety concerns, and more. The good news for families in Kentucky is that the state has very clear laws about homeschooling and non-public school options, and that information about these laws is readily provided by the Kentucky Department of Education.
