Diploma and Graduation FAQs

Can I transfer credits in from a home school portfolio? From standardized exams?

Students can be in grade 9, 10, 11, or 12 when they enroll. Generally speaking, students can apply public school credits or earned credits for homeschool work toward their graduation requirements at Insight Schools of California. Students who enroll with a transcript or a home school portfolio will speak with an Insight Schools of California Admissions Advisor who will evaluate satisfactory completion of the documented work as it relates to Insight Schools of California standards.

Who issues the diploma?

Graduating students will be issued a diploma from Insight School of California Los Angeles, Insight School of California San Diego, or Insight School of California San Joaquin.

Can my child apply to college after graduating from Insight Schools of California?

When your son or daughter graduates from Insight Schools of California, he or she will have a valid diploma received from a state-approved public school. With that diploma come all the records required for the college application process: valid transcripts, public school SAT/ACT scores, teacher recommendations, school extracurricular activities, a student portfolio, and culminating project.
