PROGRAM OF REQUIRED STUDIES
To obtain their US high school diploma in the state of Florida, where American High School is located, students need to obtain 24 credits. However, students in our Dual Diploma and Metaverse American Diploma programs will not need to take all of those 24 credits because a high percentage of them will be validated by American High School on completion of the same subjects at their school in their home country. Like that they will only need to take 4 combined courses (this may vary slightly depending on the study plan of each country).
It is important to note that 2 of these combined courses are directly related to the improvement of the student’s level of English using a proven methodology for improving comprehension and fluency.
Below is a list of universities where American High School students have been admitted.
- HARVARD UNIVERSITY
- WASHINGTON STATE UNIVERSITY
- UNIVERSITY OF MIAMI
- UNIVERSITY OF NORTH CAROLINA
- UNIVERSITY OF FLORIDA
- UNIVERSITY OF ALABAMA
- DE PAUL UNIVERSITY
The American High School Dual Diploma Program allows the validation of over 70% of the 24 credits (depending on the country where the student is studying) needed to obtain a US High School Diploma in the state of Florida.
This means that the required completed credits obtained in the student’s home country will be awarded to the student so that they only need to complete the remaining required courses for graduation in our American High School Dual Diploma Program.
This table shows the subjects included in the program*:

REQUIREMENTS FOR OBTAINING OUR US HIGH SCHOOL DIPLOMA
The awarding of a US high school diploma is subject to the obtainment of the required established number of credits and the student obtaining their high school certificate in their home country (in the case of our Dual Diploma and Metaverse American Diploma Programs).
Academic grades in all the subjects studied are based on the development level of the student regarding educational goals and academic course skills. Therefore, the performance and knowledge shown towards aspects relating to projects, online tests and other online assessments during the course will all be assessed by our American teachers who will determine the grades and/or the student’s promotion.
Progress reports and informative bulletins will be the main means of communication of the progressions and achievements of the student towards promotion.

STUDENTS IN THE DUAL DIPLOMA PROGRAM
RESPONSABILITIES OF THE STUDENT
The student is expected to maintain the appropriate pace of the course during the academic year and must make a genuine effort to achieve the best results, dedicating, for example, an average of 5 hours per week. In case of any difficulty, the student should inform their teacher who will give the necessary help and orientation.
Students will submit exercises, projects, tasks, tests and quizzes to the Learning Management System (LMS). Once this work has been graded, the students will be able to see their results, grades and any comments from the teacher through this system.
ATTENDANCE AND PARTICIPATION RULES
Attendance, participation and performance of the student will be supervised to guarantee that students fulfil the obligatory attendance rules and they progress adequately. Attendance is measured by the time the student is connected to the LMS, their contributions made via online connections, the presentation of tests, projects and tasks and email messages sent and received via the LMS. Every time the student opens a course, participation is registered automatically and time spent in each area is recorded.
