We want to help make the high school graduation process as seamless as possible — for parents and students alike! Here you’ll find important information about LUOA high school completion requirements.
Students can graduate with one of the following diplomas. No matter which degree completion plan your student decides upon, he or she has the option to take Dual Enrollment courses. Please use the links to review the requirements for each diploma below.
For class standing and placement, students are encouraged to meet the following requirements:
Students who would like to earn credit for a course taken outside of LUOA while enrolled full time should follow the steps below. In order to be considered full time with LUOA, students must take at least 5 credits through the LUOA curriculum.
Please note: The final grade of each course taken through an outside accredited institution will be included in the student’s GPA. Homeschool courses will be issued a final grade of “P” on a transcript and will not affect the GPA.
If your student is transferring from another school, your student will need to complete a minimum of 1 full year, or 5 credits, with the Academy. In addition, seniors enrolling at the Academy for the first time will need to complete 5.5 credit hours in order to graduate. If your student has been homeschooled, additional credits may be required if proper documentation cannot be provided for previous coursework.
Students planning to pursue higher education should research the entrance requirements of the particular school they wish to attend. Admission requirements will vary by school, and many colleges and universities require the ACT or SAT examination for admission. These tests are usually offered during the spring of a student’s junior or senior year.
Upon request, LUOA will send a copy of your student’s academic records to a prospective college or university. To request a transcript, contact our academic advising team. Allow 3 to 4 weeks to process requests during the summer months.
Additionally, check out our Graduate Profiles page to see a list of schools our students have been accepted to after graduating from LUOA.
