WHICH CLASSES ARE REQUIRED TO GRADUATE?
Graduation requirements for an online high school is based on the state in which the transcript or diploma will be issued. In the case of Christian Educators Academy, our home state is Florida. For a college preparatory diploma, graduates must earn:
- 4 credits English
- 4 credits Math, including Algebra 1, Algebra 2, Geometry
- 3 credits Science, including Biology and Chemistry with lab components
- 3-4 credits History, including World History, American History, Economics, US Government. We also highly recommend Geography
- 1 credit Physical Education
- 1 credit Practical Arts or a performing art such as dance
- 2 credits World Language – such as Spanish, French or even Japanese!
- .5 credits Health
- .5 credits Computer Literacy- all students earn while taking online classes!
- 6-8 credits Electives: with CEA, one must be Bible or Ethics
Elective credits can be in any subject area, including extra years of an organized sport, music, art, dance, or additional Bible credits. Some students enjoy taking career path courses such as business law, cosmetology, psychology or forensic science. Taking electives demonstrates your ability to be a well-rounded student and your commitment to academic success.

CEA is giving $100 gift card prizes for the most creative workspace and most creative picture while doing your God given talent, etc…. There will be a junior high school and high school winner.

Recently, we had a new logo commissioned for our school, which we are very excited about! This new logo will be on our website, our letterhead, and is the new “face” of CEA. It contains our school mascot, an eagle, which is inspired by the passage in Isaiah 40:30-31. I would encourage you to read the whole chapter, it’s taken on special significance for us in the past year as Mrs. Z bravely battled and triumphed over her cancer.
A huge thank you to Rachel Wamsley, who designed our logo for us. We love the unique shape of the eagle and the crisp professional look. Hopefully you like it too! One of the best things about having an official logo is that we will soon be offering CEA gear. CEA is currently preparing the logo in order to use it on merchandise for students and staff. We are hoping to include options ranging from t-shirts to mugs and tote bags. We are finalizing the details now and ordering some prototypes to ensure that the print is of good quality while still keeping costs reasonable, and we hope to provide details in our next newsletter.
