In keeping with our emphasis on natural learning, we ask graduating students to present their educational journey in the form of a written or multi-media project.

To be eligible to graduate, students must be enrolled with us for all 4 high school years, grades 9-12, or transfer in from a previous school with official transcripts.

How Does It Work?

Choose to write an Educational Biography or present a project that
illustrates your educational journey.

Educational Biography

This is a written recounting of your educational journey from as far back as you can remember up until the present time.

You can refer to our blog to see examples of students’ educational biographies.


You may submit a proposal for a project of your own creation that presents your educational journey, such as a multi-media presentation, video, artwork with narration, etc.

You will work with an advisor,
who will review your project
and then help you present your
high school years in the form
of a transcript with courses,
credits and grades.

You will receive a diploma from
an Accredited International
Private school.


Our graduates have pursued careers in business, technology, agriculture, sports, arts and entertainment, entrepreneurship and military service.

They have also gone on to technical and vocational schools, colleges and universities.
