Graduation Requirements and Transcripts
PSA is in the process of rolling out requirements to receive a high school diploma from Pride School Atlanta, Inc. Currently, PSA is a non-accredited institution that uses a non-graded portfolio system to manage student progress. Progress is assessed across the curriculum with collaboration between the teachers using multiple modalities. Core classes are based on the Georgia Standards of Excellence and updated as the Georgia Department of Education updates.
Students are required to demonstrate Passing or Mastery on each of the standards in each of the core classes. Standards are weighted evenly and students are scored using a 1-5 scale with 5 indicating Mastery. Transcripts are created from the assessment of each course averaging the scores from the standards to assign a numerical equivalent. This is used for Transcript purposes only. Students who do not demonstrate passing in the core classes continue to work with their instructors until they do.
