DIPLOMA GUIDELINES FOR EXISTING STUDENTS

Latin: 2 years of Latin are required for a diploma. This requirement can be met by taking Latin I and II in the junior high or high school years. Students currently at the sophomore through senior level are grandfathered in on this, but we would encourage them to take at least a year of Latin. If they have already started Spanish, French, or Latin, they can enroll as 2nd year Spanish, French, or Latin students if they pass the placement test indicating they are prepared for the course.

7th and 8th grade students can earn high school credit for Latin I, Latin II, Algebra I, and Physical Science taken in the junior high years. These credits will count towards the 20 required for a diploma. It is possible that students who take the courses listed above as junior high students will not need to be full-time for their junior or senior years. Accumulation of the necessary credits, in this case, takes precedence over full-time status. Not all students will pursue this path of completing high school credits at the junior high level.

Current 8th graders, enrolling as freshmen in the fall of 2016, who want an FPA diploma must enroll as a full-time student for all 4 years and accumulate a total of 20 credits, meeting the required number of credits in each subject area (see form).

Current students, enrolling as 11th through 12th graders in the fall of 2016, can receive a diploma if they have accumulated at least 10 credits with FPA and are grandfathered in under this policy in effect when they entered high school with FPA.

GRADES

All graded material is available in Canvas for students and their parents to access 24/7. When a teacher grades an assignment, quiz, or test, a notification is sent to the student’s newsfeed in Canvas. Teachers have the ability to digitally mark up papers and also attach a recorded video or audio comment to graded material, if they so choose. Students use a unique login to access their accounts and submit work.

TRANSCRIPT

Teachers provide student progress reports to parents or guardians every 4 ½ weeks throughout the school year. FreedomProject Academy provides report cards at the end of each semester. The two semester grades are averaged together for the final grade in each course. Transcripts are available upon request for all completed courses and are also posted in the Parent Portal at the conclusion of the school year.


DIPLOMA GUIDELINES FOR NEW STUDENTS

Latin: 2 years of Latin required for a diploma. This requirement can be met by taking Latin I and II in the junior high or high school years.

7th and 8th grade students can earn high school credit for Latin I, Latin II, Algebra I, and Physical Science taken in the junior high years. These credits will count towards the 20 required for a diploma. It is possible that students who take the courses listed above as junior high students will not need to be full-time for their junior or senior years. Accumulation of the necessary credits, in this case, takes precedence over full-time status. Not all students will pursue this path of completing high school credits at the junior high level.

Freshmen who want an FPA diploma must enroll as a full-time student for all 4 years and accumulate a total of 20 credits, meeting the required number of credits in each subject area (see form).

Sophomores who are new to FPA must enroll as a full-time student for all 3 years and accumulate a total of 15 credits in the subject areas required as determined by an evaluation of the courses the student completed as a freshman. A plan will be laid out (see form).

Juniors who are new to FPA must enroll as a full-time student for 2 years and accumulate a total of 10 credits in the subject areas required as determined by an evaluation of the courses the student completed as a freshman and sophomore. A plan will be laid out (see form).

Seniors who are new to FPA are welcome to enroll in any high school course, but, unless they complete 2 full-time years with passing grades at FPA, we cannot award them a diploma.


FPA GRADE/CLASS PROMOTION

As with any school, students must attain a basic mastery of subject knowledge before moving on to the next level. Elementary students must achieve 65% or higher in all subjects to be promoted to the next grade level. However, we recommend that students not move forward unless they are at least at 70% or higher in most elementary subjects.

Students in grades 6 through 12 in FPA math, science, and foreign language courses must have a final grade of 70% or higher to be promoted to the next level. In all other classes, a final grade of 60% is required to be promoted to the next grade. Students who fail any high school course must retake it if they wish to receive a diploma from FPA.
