Why Online High School?Online High Schools are just like their classroom counterparts - there are assignments, quizzes and final exams.

The number of online high schools is increasing at a steady rate as more and more schools offer quality, accredited programs online. With the presence of public, private and online high schools, individuals are faced with a greater choice when it comes to their education.
You know about regular private and public schools. They're located in your neighborhood and city. You know what they're all about and the types of programs and services they offer. What about online high school? It's a relatively new concept.
Online high school enables students to get an accredited high school education from their homes. It is just like its classroom counterpart - there are assignments, quizzes and final exams. You simply access the class material through the use of your computer 24/7, 365 days a year. It provides you with an easy way to take summer school classes online, make up credits or get a jumpstart on the upcoming school year.
Benefits of Online High School
Choose where to learn - You can take high school classes from your home or office.
Set your own pace - You can work as fast or slow as you need. You are in the driver's seat.
Study when you want - You can choose when you want to study and arrange your classes around work, sports and other responsibilities.
Avoid social pressure - You can work in an environment without the social issues that are present in a regular school.
Access class materials anytime - You can learn any time during the day or night.
There is typically an education support department to guide you with any questions or concerns you have along the way. They can be reached via e-mail, phone or fax.
Most importantly, it's easy to get started. You don't have to wait until September to begin. Simply log onto the website of an online high school and follow the steps to start. You will soon be on your way.
