An Adelphia Classical Christian Academy diploma demonstrates that its holder has taken responsibility for his or her own studies, has gained a depth of knowledge in a complete range of classical and modern subjects, is ready for college, and has taken key steps into a life as a responsible and influential Christian adult. The Academy is currently in the process of seeking course approval with the NCAA and will be following up with WASC. The table below compares the Academy's diploma requirements (three tracks) to the University of California entrance requirements. Currently, the level of the Academy's accreditation is not formally recognized by the U.C. system. It is recommended that Academy families check with entrance requirements for higher education institutions. The Academy courses are taught at the college preparatory level so that students are able to apply to colleges (if they choose) with strong academic entrance requirements. With approval from the Administration, equivalent course work from other institutions may be accepted for graduation credit and included as part of the Academy transcript.
