*successful completion of previous grade required
If the student enrolling attended a school or was homeschooled through any method other than Abeka Academy's Accredited Program the previous year, a transcript is required. Enrollments for second semester grade 9 or full grades 10–12 will require a transcript to be received and evaluated before the application may be processed. The transcript request form may be used to request transcripts for the previous school.
Students who were homeschooled should complete the appropriate Homeschool Proof of Completion.
Please understand that the courses selected may change based on the evaluation of previous transcripts to ensure that the student will be enrolled in the proper classes. You will be contacted once the transcript is evaluated if any of the courses selected need to be changed.
Students may re-enroll for the next year at any time; however, books and materials will not be shipped until the current year is completed and evaluated through the third grading period for students in grades 4–11. (K5 through grade 3 must be completed and evaluated through the fourth grading period to re–enroll.) Since students cannot be active in two or more enrollments concurrently, the earlier enrollment(s) must be completed, submitted, and course work evaluated before access to online assessments for new enrollments is available.
Abeka Academy students are required to do their own work, and supervision is necessary during all quizzes and tests, including digital assessments. Students should never have access to test and quiz answer keys. All written work is checked for plagiarism. Parent-graded items are evaluated by Abeka Academy staff who reserve the right to change grades as required in the validation process for academic consistency.
All student work should be kept current to ensure academic progress. If student work is not received by the end of each grading period as indicated on the academic calendar, the student’s academic status will become inactive. A $20 late-work fee will reactivate the student allowing the work to be evaluated.
All student work submitted becomes the unconditional property of Abeka Academy.
Complete cooperation with these policies is expected in order to continue in the accredited program. Any concerns affecting a student’s academic standing can be reviewed by submitting a written appeal of the decision to the Academic Committee. The written request must be submitted within two weeks of the decision. The Academic Committee will review facts related to the request and make a final determination. The decision of the Academic Committee is final.
Transcripts are available upon completion of at least one semester of work.
Transcripts are considered official only when sent directly to another institution. Unofficial report cards and transcript can be viewed on the account dashboard by accessing the My Student section. Official report cards are a validation of work received and are sent by mail upon request to the address on record on the account.
Students must complete a total of 24 credits, which includes a minimum of 4 credits with Abeka Academy in grade 12.
Diplomas will be mailed once all video lessons have been watched and all course work is successfully completed. Diplomas are withheld pending return of outstanding DVDs and payment of account in full.
Class rank is based on the weighted Grade Point Average and includes all seniors who graduated between June 1 and May 31.
