Questions about the High School Program

Flex Major School is an educational institution that offers schools around the world a dual degree program. We offer the equivalence of the national curriculum and thus allows the student to study only the missing American subjects to complete high school. Thus, through a hybrid model, the student can achieve the high school diploma of his country and the United States.

In addition to the cultural enrichment and enhancement of the curriculum, a student with a dual diploma has a greater possibility of enrolling in international, especially American Universities.

No. Our teaching method is hybrid, or otherwise known as blended learning. It depends a lot on the student's performance at home, but also has mandatory classroom instruction on a weekly basis.

Students from the 8th grade of primary school and with an English proficiency level of at least A1+ can enroll in the program. However, the higher their English level the better for them, since all their classes, assignments and tests are done in English.

The student must be attending at least the 8th grade.

In order to graduate from Flex Major School, the student must do English (4 credits), Mathematics (4 credits), Science (3 credits), Social studies (3 credits), Arts/Theater/Orality Credit) and Electives (8 credits). The student receives credit equities through their local curriculum, so they need to study only the remaining credits to complete the Flex Major School program.

Yes, it is possible, as long as 6 credits are earned through Flex Major School.

You can, there is no maximum admission for the student to join Flex Major School.

The program has a standard duration of 3 years; however, this period can be flexible according to the needs of the student.

Yes, it is possible. It will require a lot of student discipline, but it can speed up the deadline for early graduation.

As long as you always align with your school, the partner of Flex Major School, you can extend the program.

For final validation and receipt of the diploma, we need all final grades of your High School. If you have not yet completed all courses, you will only receive your certificate at the end of 3rd year.

The student has 3 hours of compulsory attendance and a further 1 hour of monitoring, in addition to the time of study at home.

The student is expected to study 3 to 5 hours per week. However, study time may vary from student to student, depending on the level of English, concentration, reading pace and discipline.

If the student is left with a final grade of F, then he/she will have to take the discipline again. If you complete the course with C or D, we also recommend that you redo it, in this case, at the discretion of the student and your parents.

AP Disciplines are Advanced Placement. They are disciplines at a level of deepening that can earn college credits granted the AP test is passed. Students who study AP disciplines with high final grades are more likely to enter US colleges.

No. The cost is the same as other disciplines, although it is more difficult.

To complete the AP college credit, the student must take a final test, in places and dates previously announced by College Board. Each course has a different passing rate. Flex Major School offers AP courses for the students to be better prepared for the exam, along with American teachers and our school partners support to ensure successful completion of the course.

Whatever you have concluded with us, we will deliver the transcript, or official history. Each school, however, has its own rules for validating credits in other institutions.

Yes, in this case the student would study elective courses off of the dual diploma program.

Entry Questions for Universities

The student with a dual degree can apply for any American university.
No. No High School offers direct access without specific requirements. It is important to understand that each university has its specific requirements for admission.

The SAT is the Scholastic Assessment Test or also called the Scholastic Aptitude Test. It is an American educational exam, used for high school students to enter universities. It is worth noting that the SAT is not the only assessment that can be evaluated for the application in American universities.

Traditionally, most American students take this test at the end of their junior year or during their senior year of High School. At Flex Major School, we recommend that any student interested in studying abroad at an American university takes this exam during the High School program, especially during the last year of their home country High School.

A College Board enrollment site is required, and the test schedule is available annually as well as the SAT application centers in the desired country.

GPA is the Grade Point Average. Basically, it is a scoring system that measures the average of all the disciplines studied throughout High School, transforming them into the following points:

Letter Grade Percent Grade 4.0 Scale
A+ 97-100 4.0
A 93-96 4.0
A- 90-92 3.7
B+ 87-89 3.3
B 83-86 3.0
B- 80-82 2.67
C+ 77-79 2.33
C 73-76 2.0
C- 70-72 1.7
D+ 67-69 1.3
D 65-66 1.0
E/F Below 65 0.0
