Choose your own path to succeed. Study On Campus or Online and finish your high school in 2-3 years 100% Accredited

In planning a course of study, students should consult with their advisors, speak with current teachers for placement recommendations, review the course of study guide for updated requirements, and complete a four-year academic planning guide.  Rising seniors should also consult with their college counsellor.  In general, each course of study should

  • meet all graduation requirements;

  • create a well-rounded, balanced experience;

  • match strengths with appropriate challenges, and develop in less confident areas; and

  • provide opportunities and enthusiasm for growth, exploration, and risk taking.

Yearly course selections should be made with a four-year program of courses in mind.
