For many people who never finished their high school diplomas or who are no longer able to
do so in a brick and mortar school, a high school online may be the way to go. Offering flexibility in study and completion times and the
convenience of being able to work at home, these programs have helped people who would otherwise be unable to complete a high school
program do so.
So how does a high school online differ from a physical high school?
The main difference is that lack of a formal classroom structure.
Often online courses are more independently oriented which means the student is responsible for finding and scheduling the time to work on
the curriculum, keeping up with the reading and doing the assignments and making sure they understand the course content. To do this,
requires someone who is can work independently and is motivated. This is not to say that the student is on their own. Usually counselors
and teachers are available to assist the student who does not understand a concept or is struggling with a particular aspect of a subject.
In many cases this works out just fine. Many students who attend a high school online are older students who for a variety of reasons did
not finish their high school diploma. They are more mature and have a better understanding of how important a high school diploma is, so
are more motivated and will do the work without anyone holding their hand.
At Great Lakes Academy we offer a fast affordable high school diploma for the student who is motivated and wants to improve their
prospects in life. With a program which is completed entirely online, students can obtain their diplomas quickly, efficiently and at
