Single Credit/ Virtual High School

This program is designed to assist students who need additional credits to graduate from High School. It is specifically for those students who need one or two courses per semester to maintain their Junior or Senior status. Each section is limited to approximately 12 students that allows for individualized access to computers and Internet programs. Students must be in grades 10 though 12 and currently enrolled in their Home School District. Single Credit Courses-  Our math single credit course is taught in a traditional, lecture educational style.  Instruction is teacher lead.  Daily assignments are given.  All assignments are expected to be finished during class time, as homework is not generally given. Virtual Courses- Our virtual catalog offers a larger scope of academic course work.  These classes are offered completely on-line.  There is little “in person” interaction and instruction with the teacher.  Students should be self- motivated, as they need to complete all assignments as the course dictates. Additionally, any student interested in an on-line course should have internet access out side of scheduled class time.
