Earn Your Diploma Faster with an Online High SchoolAugust 19, 2011
Online high school programs offer a variety of benefits over the traditional high school experience; A self-paced learning environment, increased productivity, and a faster time-line to graduate. Students who take online high school courses can graduate with an accredited diploma several months earlier than the traditional high school student.
Students Can Work At their Own Pace
High school students all learn at their own pace, some students understand a concept immediately, and other students have a hard time picking up new material. This difference in learning speeds tends to inhibit the progress of faster learners, and it leaves other students behind. An online high school program allows students to complete their course material at their own pace, allowing them to fully master each topic before moving on to the next section.
This self-paced independent study model helps struggling students to maintain good grades, and it enables other students to speed through their courses at a much faster rate compared to a public school setting. Online high school students have the flexibility to spend as much or as little time on each course as they wish, while at least meeting the class requirements.
The Virtual Classroom Helps to Avoid Distractions
Students are surrounded by distractions in a traditional high school. It’s easy for a student to lose focus with even the slightest disturbance, and teachers are often unable to reacquire the classes attention when they get disrupted. These distractions limit teacher productivity and cause unnecessary delays to the student learning experience. A virtual classroom environment keeps students on-task and maintains their focus on coursework instead of what else is going on with their neighboring students.
Graduate Earlier than Traditional High School Students
A traditional high school student will spend about 6 and a half hours at school each day. With an hour of lunches and transition time, as well as another one or two hours of busywork and homework time during classes. In reality, 2 to 3 hours of each school day are wasted.
Taking online high school classes eliminates much of this wasted time, and it actually allows students to graduate months, and even years before their class. If a student were to study from 8 AM to 2 PM, 5 days a week, they could complete their entire high school diploma in 20 to 24 months. Throw in a few week-long vacations and a 2 month summer break, and these students are still nearly a full year ahead.
