Step 1: Application and Entrance Exams
Parents and students interested in the diploma program should purchase and fill out the online application between November 1 and March 15. Along with the online application, students will receive the entrance exams.
The entrance exams test each student on two primary subjects: language arts and mathematics. The language arts portion covers word definitions along with a two-part reading test. The four-part mathematics exam covers arithmetic, Pre-Algebra, and Algebra I. If a student is currently taking Pre-Algebra or Algebra I then he or she need not take the exam for that particular class. An Algebra I student applying would take the arithmetic and Pre-Algebra exams.
Admission and Consultation
Submission of the application and entrance tests are not a guarantee of acceptance into the program. After you submit the application and entrance exams and a decision is made about your student’s acceptance, the administration will notify you about the results.
Upon acceptance into the program, the administration will work with both the parents and the student to create an individualized high school degree map. This consultation will ensure that each student can successfully complete the requirements for graduation.
Step 3: Registration
Before general registration opens each year, diploma students are able to register for their courses. In addition to this early registration period, the administration will work with each student to secure a spot in any required course, even if that course is full.
