Diploma & Graduation
What are the Graduation Requirements?
High school graduation requirements differ by state. Please visit your school to learn more about the requirements in your state.
Do students participate in state testing?
Insight students enrolled full-time are required to participate in state testing. Please visit your school for the specifics in your state. Insight staff will make arrangements so that students can take the test in a location that is geographically close to where they live.
Can I transfer credits in from a homeschool portfolio? From standardized exams?
Students can be in 9th, 10th, 11th, or 12th grade when they enroll. Generally speaking, students can transfer in high school credits or earn credit for homeschool work to apply towards their graduation requirements at Insight. Students who enroll with high school credits or with work from a homeschool portfolio must meet with an Enrollment Advisor to evaluate satisfactory completion of the work as it relates to Insight standards. For more details, talk with an Enrollment Advisor toll-free at (877) 25-INSIGHT (877-254-6744).
Who issues the diploma? What does it say?
The school district that partners with Insight Schools in your state issues the diploma and its name appears on the graduation diploma. For more information, please visit your school.
Can my student apply to college after graduating from Insight?
Absolutely. When your son or daughter graduates from Insight Schools, he or she will have a valid diploma from our district partnership in your state. For specific school district information, please visit your school. With that diploma come all the records that are required for the college application process: valid transcripts, public high school SAT/ACT scores, teacher recommendations, school extracurricular activities, a student portfolio and culminating project.
There are additional benefits for college-bound students who graduate from Insight Schools:
- Students can choose from multiple academic options—AP (Advanced Placement), Honors, and College Prep—designed specifically to help pave the way for college admission. These academic options offer the necessary courses, preparation and challenges.
- Colleges and universities over the past several years have begun to appreciate that independent study programs such as Insight Schools often do a better job of preparing students for college because of important time management and individual responsibility skills they impart. Colleges are finding students from programs such as Insight Schools make the transition into college more readily than their many of their counterparts.
