Once the courses have been finalized and tuition has been paid, the student will be enrolled in their classes and begin learning!

All of our full-time programs are fully accredited and students who graduate our High School Program will receive an accredited U.S. high school diploma.

How Our Online Courses Work

At Your Own Pace

Students work through the lessons and assignments at their own pace. There is a pacing guide in the course that has target due dates. This pacing guide is based upon the course start and end dates and distributes the work evenly through the course period. The pacing guide is a suggestion, meaning students can always submit work early or after the target due date as long as they complete all of their work by the course end date. 20 weeks is the maximum amount a time a student can spend in a semester.

Learn Your Way

In each class, your student will have a highly-qualified teacher that will grade assignments, answer course content questions, and be available for one-on-one sessions with your child as needed. Teachers will also have optional group synchronous sessions where students can engage in group discussion and learning.

Login Anytime

Students can login to the learning platform anytime, from anywhere, and can complete their lessons and assignments! There are no set login times, unless a meeting with the teacher has been pre-scheduled.

Credits Earned

Upon completing a course, your child will receive a final grade. All classes taken with us are officially accredited and we can send transcripts to any other institution.

Parent Testimonial

“Personalized attention made all the difference for my child. She used to say she wasn't good at math. Her teacher showed her that she just needs more time to solve problems. Now, she enjoys math!”

Student Testimonial

“The flexible schedule lets me work around my pre-professional obligations like music lessons, rehearsals, and auditions, and I’m right on track with my academic timeline. It's the best of both worlds.”
