When comparing brick and mortar schools to online high school education, things can get a little difficult to understand. Flexible scheduling for online high schools can make it seem like students won’t have to do as much work compared to traditional high schools, which is not true. While some online schools allow students longer or shorter periods to complete courses and assignments, rest assured requirements for learning the materials are the same.

In an online high school setting, there are more options for classes, which often means that more challenging or advanced courses are available students that are not available in local high schools. The increased difficulty of higher-level classes, may require students to spend more time on classwork than someone in a traditional high school might spend on a somewhat similar course.

Ultimately, the expectations for course work and time are similar. Students still need to learn the same information for testing and a GED or diploma. Contact us for more details on a typical schedule as well as general assignment expectations.
