MBA is working jointly with Southeastern University and Oral Roberts University to dual enroll high school students. Only eligible 10th, 11th and 12th grade students, with a minimum of a 3.0 GPA, may participate in this program. Additionally, we require that all students wanting to participate in the dual enrollment program meet the following test requirements:
- ACT: Reading- 19, English- 17, Algebra- 19
- SAT: Reading- 24, English- 25, Algebra- 24
- PERT: Reading- 106, English- 103, Algebra- 114
This program has strict requirements as to approved classes and schedules.
Each institution has established their own set of criteria regarding eligibility and course offerings. Students receiving below a 3.0 GPA, and/or a grade of a “D” or “F” in any D.E. course, will be subject to withdrawal from this program. Information for each of these institutions are available by clicking ORU or SEU.
Florida Virtual School (FLVS Flex)
Florida Virtual School offers a variety of flexible options where students can take courses anytime during the year to stay on target or get back on track. FLVS Flex offers year-round, rolling enrollment so students can start and finish a course at any time. With FLVS Flex, students can work at an accelerated pace to finish in less time.

All students in 9th through 12th grade are required to complete 25 hours of community service per year (100 hours during their high school career). Students will be afforded opportunities throughout the school year to meet these requirements but should also look for ways to serve outside of school. Additionally, due to the strict requirements set forth by the State of Florida and Bright Futures, only 5 hours of serving in a local church ministry (Sunday School/Kids Area) are allowed per year or no more than 20 hours in 4 years.

MBA takes advantage of the Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test (PSAT/NMSQT) to prepare students for college entrance exams. The PSAT/NMSQT provides preliminary training for the SAT and is administered each year. Students in 8th and 9th grade take the PSAT and students in 10th grade take the NMSQT. Scores on the NMSQT are used to qualify for National Merit Scholarships, so for the gifted student who does well, the PSAT can be a means of obtaining recognition for college scholarships.
College Entrance Exams
In addition to the PSAT/NMSQT tests, MBA also utilizes the SAT and the ACT. Both of these tests are given during the school day so that our students can take them in a comfortable environment. The SAT is given in the fall, and the ACT is given in the spring. MBA students are encouraged to take the SAT and the ACT during their junior and senior years. Many SAT and ACT practice materials are available for free online, but MBA is pleased to recommend Khan Academy as a free quality source for SAT test prep.
