If a student attends The Cambridge Academy and chooses not to have teacher support, they are considered home school students and credits will not be awarded for the courses. They will not graduate from The Cambridge Academy, nor will credits be able to be transferred to another school. They will have to follow their own state's guidelines for acquiring a high school diploma.
If a student is enrolled in at least six full time courses with teacher support, they can receive a high school diploma from The Cambridge Academy. If their roster has less than six classes, they are considered part time and should transfer the credits to another school as they will not be able to graduate from our academy.
Students up to 18 years of age can earn a high school diploma from The Cambridge Academy by demonstrating they have fulfilled our high school graduation requirements. To obtain a standard high school diploma from The Cambridge Academy, students must successfully complete at least 24 credits of high school coursework.
If a student is planning on graduating from the Cambridge Academy, we will need to have a record of your previous schooling. This includes:
Standard Diploma: 24 Credits Required
It is your responsibility to choose appropriate courses! Please check the following chart.
At any time parents may request their student's grades. Transcripts requested during an enrollment period will note the student's completion percentage. Transcripts requested at the conclusion of an enrollment period will contain a GPA. There is a $42.00 fee for a transcript.
Credits issued on a transcript can come from a variety of places. Credits transferred from another school or home school program to The Cambridge Academy will be listed on the transcript if deemed acceptable by our Registrar.
Please note: If your student transfers into us from another school or program, we cannot issue an official cumulative transcript until and unless we have received all transcripts from the other schools. In the case that records are missing, we will issue a transcript for the school years attended at The Cambridge Academy only.
After we receive your student's official transcript from your previous school(s) or your portfolio from your previous homeschool program(s), an evaluation is prepared. This document encompasses both the credits transferred to our academy, as well as the courses that are still necessary according to our high school graduation requirements. The evaluation will be emailed to the address we have on file for you for your personal records, while a copy will be stored in your student's file.
Each completed and passed, full-year course is given one (1) full credit. Semester courses are given a half (.5) credit.
The fees to transfer credits in to The Cambridge Academy are as such:
Please note: It is very important to provide all previous school records to the Office of the Registrar, so that the student stays on track during their high school years. If you should have any questions or concerns, please contact our Registrar by e-mail at MemberServices@TheCambridgeAcademy.org.
Cambridge Academy students are expected to work diligently and consistently on their school work. The Cambridge Academy is registered in the State of Texas. As such we require all students (even if residing in another state) to fulfill Texas's Education Code Section 25.086 which requires that students complete the following amount of hours in a given school year:
The Cambridge Academy considers "net instrucitonal hours" to be the sum of your logged Intructional Time as recorded in your timelog/gradebook plus your logged Joy Directed Activity time.
If a student does not meet these attendance requirements, they will not pass the grade and will be forced to repeat the grade level.
If medical or family issues arise that may cause the student to miss an extended amount of school, a letter must be emailed to The Cambridge Academy member services department (MemberServices@TheCambridgeAcademy.org) with verification of the issue. All medical and family issues are handled on a case by case basis.
