Online Public School

A student’s day might include an interactive math class, followed by a break for sports or to talk with a classmate about a shared hobby, then working with a parent to manage their time for upcoming assignments.

Online Private School

Tuition-based online private school can be a great option for students who need even more flexibility. Lower student-teacher ratios mean students receive more one-to-one instruction.

Online Private School

Like their public school peers, private school students also have countless ways to explore interests and career paths. While some private schools are faith-based, all provide Advanced Placement and honors courses.

Summer School

Does your child need extra time to explore? Do they need additional classes to graduate on schedule? Keep them engaged and learning with summer courses.
