One Diploma … Multiple Paths of Study


With HLA’s Goal-Based Planning and multiple paths of study, each student can select the path that best fits their unique goals, talents, and passions. Refer to our High School Planning section for detailed information about each path. We also provide you with the planning tools needed to successfully and confidently design a high school plan based on each student’s need.

If you are unsure which path is the best fit for your student, a career assessment might be helpful. We also have options for special needs students.  If you need assistance, our counselors are available to help guide you along the way.

Graduation Deadline: HLA’s policy is that the student has until September 15 following their senior year to finish courses, complete reporting requirements, and request the diploma. Students who do not meet this deadline must re-enroll for the following year to be eligible for graduation.  Students who do not meet the Sept 15 deadline and do not re-enroll the following year to complete high school requirements may not be eligible for graduation or may be required to complete courses through our NEST Program. It is the parent’s responsibility to be sure that all FINAL grades and credits are reported and the diploma requested by September 15 of the final year with HomeLife Academy. HomeLife Academy does not guarantee a diploma if these deadlines are not met.


Early Graduation Qualifications:

Students planning to graduate in less than 4 years or before the age of 17 must have the following to be eligible for early graduation: For counselor approval, please contact Karen.

  • The student must have at least three (3) years of high school as HLA does not offer a 2-year high school option.
  • Meet HLA’s minimum credit requirements.
  • ACT, SAT, or CLT scores submitted to HLA with scores that show readiness to graduate and validate the early graduation.
  • Counselor approval prior to student’s final year.

NOTE: SE Modified Path does not qualify for early graduation.
