About Virtual Education

Online schooling allows the freedom to work at your own pace, whether faster or slower and the ability to work when it suits you so that you can attend to personal matters without missing class. It’s a customized program that allows you to play to your strengths, take subjects that may not be available otherwise, and graduate with an advanced diploma and college credits from dual enrollment classes, which are actual college classes that can be completed earning both high school and college credit.

These programs allow students a chance to graduate ahead of schedule. The course schedules can be individualized to fit each student’s career plans such as classes geared towards a high-level college, community college or a career straight out of high school. Another advantage from a teacher’s standpoint is being able to create online documents, study guides, assignments, and class notes that are available to students anytime and anywhere.

Some schools even offer technical classes in addition to strictly academic classes. It is important to choose a school with accreditation to ensure that the program meets the standards of the Department of Education and will be recognized by the student’s college of choice. Another advantage that allows an accelerated path to your high school diploma is the ability to work year round so, if a student does not want to lose two or three months a year, he or she can choose to continue working during the summer months.

Some schools offer an amalgamation of online and classroom schooling which is a blend of online work, such as tests, quizzes, and study guides combined with classroom presentations and projects. This approach, per the U. S. Department of Education, has shown the best results.

Some traditional high schools have adopted this program as an addition or alternative to traditional classes. Students can enroll in online classes but still have the ability to visit the school to meet with advisors and teachers for help with any issues. These types of programs also cover the social portion of a typical high school. Students can attend social events since the online classes are administered by their local high schools.

This addendum to traditional high school also allows many students dealing with obstacles such as a teen pregnancy, a previous dropout or those who have to work for one reason or another to continue their education.
