3. Does my student need any testing in high school?
In order for our high school students to graduate, they will need to fulfill one of the following options:
a) Two Stanford Achievement tests with a stanine score of a 4 or higher on both tests. These tests should be done in the 9th, 10th, or 11th grade.
b) One ACT test taken in the 10th, 11th, or the 12th grade with a minimum score of 16 or higher. This test can be taken more than once to improve the score. We also encourage our students to prepare for the ACT by using the practice tests that are available on the ACT website.
You can register for this test at www.actstudent.org. Use our high school code, 430-887 when registering. Also, there is a fee to enroll.
Please note that students are not required to take the ACT Writing test unless it is required by the college they wish to attend. We do not require the Writing portion of this test for graduation.
If your student fails to take any required test then we cannot issue a diploma, even if all credits are earned. Again, please contact our school office with any questions about testing. Do not wait until your student's senior year to plan for this part of high school.
4. What does my student need for a Driver's Permit?
When your student is ready to get a Driver's Permit, they will need the SF1010 form. This is a compulsory attendance state form that is required by the TN Department of Motor Vehicles. You will need to submit an online request to our school office to start the process.
Please note that everything must be up to date in the student file. This includes curriculum lists and semester reports. We must also have a copy of their birth certificate and a social security number (state requirement) on file.
This form takes 3 to 5 business days to complete and mail. Please note that we cannot fax or email it (it's an original triplicate document). In addition, it expires in 30 days, so your student will need to take their driving test within that time (otherwise, you will have to resubmit with a fee).
