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. Any students not finished by the September deadline must re-enroll that year to finish and be eligible to graduate.


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.
