It’s no secret that the traditional brick-and-mortar style of high school does not work for every student. Whether it’s feeling underwhelmed in your courses, being afraid of falling behind, or not enjoying the rigid school day structure, it can be easy to write your high school experience off as a loss. However, you can take charge of your education and future by enrolling in an online high school. If you’re on the fence about making the change, here are four reasons why online high school is right for you:
You have an unusual schedule that requires more flexibility.
Do you want more time to devote to your passions outside the classroom? Online high school enables you to do classwork on your OWN time, making it easier to adjust your schedule based on what you have going on each day. Have a part-time job that starts in the afternoon? Carve out time to work on your assignments in the morning. Are you on a sports team that has early morning practices? Hit the books in the afternoon. And if your family is planning a vacation, don’t worry about taking time off school! As long as you have internet access, you can take classes and complete coursework anywhere in the world.
You want to be challenged.
If you’re looking for a more engaging classroom experience, online high school is right for you. Here at ASU Prep Digital, we leverage technology to offer students alternatives to the average classroom experience, including lessons utilizing virtual reality and interactive assignments. If you’re looking for an even more rigorous schedule, consider starting down the path toward your college major by adding a university course to your plate. Through ASU Prep Digital, you can take classes with Arizona State University and begin earning college credit while you’re still in high school.
You prefer working at your own pace.
In a traditional high school class, you’re expected to keep up with the rest of your peers. This leaves little opportunity to work ahead or spend more time on a particular topic if you don’t fully grasp it. In an online high school, you can set your own pace and decide how much time you spend on a particular subject each day, thanks to the freedom of creating your own schedule. If you’re feeling ambitious, complete future assignments and give yourself breathing room later in the semester. On the flip side, if you feel yourself struggling, you can reach out for help without feeling like you’ll fall behind.
You desire a personalized learning environment.
Ultimately, an online high school provides one signature component that sets it apart: personalized learning. At ASU Prep Digital, you will be provided with a Learning Success Coach who will be with you every step of the way. In addition to helping you design a course schedule that fits your needs and learning style, they will help you set goals both in and out of the classroom. Your path to success is your own and you will have support from your LSC, teachers, and parents to ensure you reach your full potential.
As long as you have a love of learning, an appetite for innovation, and a desire to create a path to college and beyond, online high school is right for you. If you’re ready to make a change, get started today.
