Odysseyware Academy Graduation Requirements & Typical High School Course Chart

Odysseyware Academy offers courses for students in grades 3-12. If your student is enrolling part time, talk to their school about which courses would be best so they stay on track.

For students enrolling full time, talk to our Academic Advisor who will assist you in creating an individualized schedule for your student that best addresses their learning goals. Typical full-time students in 3rd through 8th grade are expected to take language arts, math, science, and history and social studies. Additional courses and electives are available to students in 9th through 12th grade.

If your student is interested in earning an Odysseyware Academy diploma, they must earn at least their last six credits through the academy before graduation in addition to meeting our high school diploma requirements. High school credits earned prior to academy enrollment can be accepted based on official transcripts. There are two diploma options for students, the Standard and the University Prep.

The University Prep diploma prepares students with typical high school course requirements for admission to four year universities. However, colleges and universities may have additional course requirements. Students and parents should work closely with the Academic Advisor to ensure that they meet admission requirements for specific universities.
