Diploma and Graduation FAQs
Can I transfer credits in from a home school portfolio and/or from standardized exams?
Students who enroll with a homeschool transcript or a homeschool portfolio will need to complete a placement test to transfer any applicable credits, as these school situations are considered non-accredited. An Insight School of Oklahoma Academic Counselor will create a plan for placement testing.
Who issues the diploma?
Graduating students will be issued a diploma from Insight School of Oklahoma.
Can my child apply to college after graduating from Insight School of Oklahoma?

Where Can I Find the Most Recent OK State, School Report Cards?
Under the ESSA, beginning with information from the 2017-2018 school year, report cards must be posted annually on district websites. (ESEA section 1111(h) (1) (A), (B)(iii) and (h)(2)(A), (B)(iii)). At the core of the Oklahoma School Report Cards is the belief that all students can grow, and all schools can improve. While no student report card tells the full story of a child, no school report card tells the full story of a school. Education is far more than a single score or letter grade, but it is important that families and communities can see both strengths and areas that need support and improvement.
