What is the difference between a high school transcript
and a diploma?

Transcript:   A transcript  is an official document that shows the courses you have taken, the grades you earned, and a cumulative grade point average. A transcript is NOT a diploma. 

Most college and universities require that you submit a transcript, not a diploma, as part of the college admissions process.


Diploma:   A diploma is an official document that certifies that you have successfully completed a particilar course of study.

The diploma earned after completing International Learning Academy's course of study verifies that you have satisfied the high school curriculum standards as defined by the state of Florida.



                                                   
                                
Graduation Ceremony:
We have two graduation ceremonies a year in the spring and the fall. 
Our school colors are royal blue, black and silver. The caps and gowns are royal blue and the tassels are royal blue, black and silver.
Students who maintain a 3.0 grade point average, may earn a diploma of distinction and receive an honor medal.



                        It is never too early or too late to graduate!

School Mascot:
We are the ILA Dragons and our Dragon mascot's name is WOOGA (We Opt On Getting Ahead.) Check him out in the photo at ILA Student Activities.
