The Best Online High Schools

Your Guide to Online K12 Education

Online high schools can be a fantastic alternative to traditional high school for students and families who need flexibility and customization. This guide will cover every aspect of online education and help you find the best online high school for your needs.

Trends in education show that all forms of online education and virtual schools are exploding with growth. Together we'll find the best way to receive your high school diploma online.

What is an Online High School?

Online high schools go by several names. You may have heard them called cyber schools, virtual schools, virtual Academies, or online charter schools. Sometimes these schools even attempt to brand themselves as home school programs.

All of them are alternatives to traditional classroom style learning. Instruction takes place through discussion boards, emails, phone calls, and conference call software. The curriculum is also digital. In most scenarios, the instructor and the student or remotely located and work at their own pace at any time they wish.

Online schools are far from mainstream. Nevertheless, these digital high schools are one of the fastest growing options.

But online high school is not just for young adults. Many working adults who lack a high school diploma use online high schools as a springboard to better job opportunities.

Common Types

There are free (public state-funded online schools) and paid (private schools) online schools.

The main types of online school models are:

  • “Virtual Academies”
  • “Home School Program”
  • “Insight Schools”
  • “Blended Schools”
  • “Career Academies”

Accreditation

Each state has unique education laws. Therefore, you should check with your local board of education before committing to an online school that claims to be "accredited." There is no such thing as a national accreditation for a high school.

Who benefits the most from a cyber school?

  • Students with Complicated Schedules
  • AP Students
  • Military Families
  • Employed Adults

    Accepts International Students / International Students can Enroll: yes - FAQs: International Students Are your materials used in other countries? We live outside the U.S. Will we have to adapt your materials in order to use them? We get this question often because families all around the world are using our materials. We’ve had recent inquiries on this topic from Australia, Ireland, Canada, the Czech Republic, South Africa, Singapore, Mali, Ecuador, and Brazil. We have students from over 40 countries currently enrolled in our accredited distance learning school, and many more who are using our curriculum independently. International families wonder about adapting the curriculum based on their country’s history, culture, and climate. In the early grades it is very easy to adapt the curriculum as needed to suit your unique living environment and life situation, and our teachers are used to working with families to craft a meaningful education for our enrolled students. For instance, lessons in the early grades that mention the seasons can be modified to incorporate the local weather and climate. Science lessons focus on observation skills, which can be practiced at any time of year in any locale. Supplementing our materials with language lessons, a traditional art or craft, or any other cultural enrichment is encouraged. In the upper grades of our K-8 curriculum, the two most U.S.-centric courses are social studies in 5th grade (U.S. History) and the civics in 8th grade, but it is not that hard to adapt them to your country when using our materials independently. For example, a lesson about U.S. colonial history can be modified to focus on your country’s early history (or when it first became settled by non-indigenous people). A lesson on the U.S. Constitution can be replaced with one in which students research and report on the founding governing documents of their country. You’ll find you can usually use the lesson framework and make modifications as needed. It may take some time to locate resource materials specific to your country for your child to use but you might be able to get good ideas from your local school district, teachers, department of education, or other homeschoolers. Enrolled students, however, must follow the curriculum or arrange adaptations individually with their teacher. Families can substitute assignments in the older grades, but not lesson material. For instance, all 8th graders will learn about the U.S. Articles of Confederation, but when asked to do research, they can learn more about their own country’s historical documents. If your country uses the metric system, the math curriculum only needs adaptations when working with weights and measures, or when working word problems that use weights and measures. Families can easily change these problems from feet or inches to centimeters, from yards to meters, etc. This would require, again, some work on your part, in either recopying the problems or in just making changes in the text. Most of the math work is solely numeric (with no unit measurements) and will not need modifications. New in 2016! Digital delivery of PreK to grade 8 curricula now available! The digital curriculum is a replication of our high quality print product. This option was developed in response to feedback from families who travel or live remotely, or for whom high shipping costs and long delivery times discourage purchase of print materials. Read more. Can students who are not fluent in English use Oak Meadow materials or enroll in your school? Students need to be fairly fluent in English in order to use our curriculum successfully. Since our curriculum is very dependent upon reading and writing skills, it is sometimes not the best fit for children who are not very experienced in English language skills. Families wishing to use Oak Meadow are advised to allow time for their child to develop English writing and spelling skills before using the curriculum or enrolling. How do international students or those living in different time zones communicate with their teachers? Oak Meadow teachers are used to working with students around the globe. Since most of the communication between teachers and families is handled via email or online, students can send their comments, ask questions, and submit work at any time, and our teachers (almost all of whom live in the Eastern Standard time zone) will respond during their work day hours. Phone calls and Google Chat communication can also be arranged based on the schedule of the teacher and family. How long does it take materials to ship outside the U.S.? Can we still mail lessons to our teacher even if we live in another country? New in 2016! Digital delivery of PreK to grade 8 curricula now available! The digital curriculum is a replication of our high quality print product. This option was developed in response to feedback from families who travel or live remotely, or for whom high shipping costs and long delivery times discourage purchase of print materials. Read more. Shipping time for orders can vary greatly depending on the time of year and where the package is going. While we do our best to ship orders promptly, packages often get held up in Customs. These delays are unpredictable, of course, but you will receive an order confirmation email that includes a tracking number. You can check the progress of your package, and this will give you an idea of when to expect its arrival. Please note that customers are responsible for any additional charges due to customs taxes and duties. If you enroll in Oak Meadow School, your enrollment and curriculum materials will be shipped as soon as your enrollment is finalized. We encourage families living outside the U.S. to complete the enrollment process well in advance of their start date to ensure the materials arrive in time. If there is a shipping delay that will necessitate a change in the enrollment start date, please contact the office before the start date and they will be happy to put the start date on hold until your materials arrive. Enrolled students are welcomed to send work submissions through the mail, but most choose to submit work electronically since it is less expensive, quicker, and all the original work stays at home. Those who plan to use the postal mail to send lessons to their teacher are advised to keep a copy at home (packages do occasionally get lost or misdirected), and to let their teacher know when a package is on the way. If there will be a delay in shipping for any reason, notify your teacher as soon as possible. If we enroll, is your program accredited in other countries? Our distance learning school is accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools/Council of Accreditation and School Improvement (SACS/CASI). Through this accreditation, Oak Meadow School is recognized by the five other regional accrediting agencies: New England Association of Schools and Colleges (NEASC): Oak Meadow is the first distance school ever to receive NEASC accreditation, recognizing homeschoolers all over the world. North Central Association Commission on Accreditation and School Improvement Western Association of Schools and Colleges Northwest Association of Accredited Schools Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools While Oak Meadow cannot guarantee that an individual school or country will accept our credits, our transcripts carry the seal of our accrediting organizations and have been widely accepted by schools and universities around the world. It is common practice for major accrediting associations to share reciprocity across international lines. Of course, each country is different in how they view distance learning, so you’ll want to research this on your own. There are times when a family may need to provide additional documentation or progress reports. Oak Meadow is happy to assist you with this process in whatever way we can. We live outside the U.S. and are unfamiliar with the different grade levels. How do we figure out which grades would be appropriate for the ages of our children? In general, children enter kindergarten at five years old, and first grade when they are six, so you can calculate grade placement in higher grades based on that. It is also a good idea to consider the content of each grade when determining where to start a child in the upper grades. See K-12 grade overviews and High School course overviews to help you decide which grade to choose when you are trying to balance content with what has already been studied. While most children begin the formal schooling of 1st grade at age six, we encourage families to consider each child individually when making the decision about when to begin kindergarten or 1st grade. In the Waldorf community, it is common for children to enter 1st grade at age six and a half or seven, while in public school, many first graders are only five years old. The idea behind the practice of delaying first grade is to allow children more time to mature physically before asking them to bring their awareness to the focused work of academics, and many families using Oak Meadow follow this practice. Other families look for signs that their child is ready for reading and writing, and they begin 1st grade at that point. Of course, it often happens that children seem to fall in between grade levels, making grade placement more challenging. When this happens, it helps to consider whether or not a child is eager for new challenges and enjoys striving to master difficult material; if so, the higher grade is appropriate. If the child prefers to have plenty of time to master and review material, the lower grade makes more sense. You can find more good information about grade placement on this page of our FAQs. Remember, every child is different and you know your children best!

    Additional Information: Based on rigorous academic standards: Our curriculum aligns with accepted national academic standards, while maintaining our commitment to providing an innovative, experiential, child-centered education. Involves the whole child: An Oak Meadow education engages and integrates every aspect of the child. Our compassionate approach encourages critical thinking and intellectual development through hands-on activities, interdisciplinary projects, and thoughtful reading and writing practice. Respects the natural development of children: Our curriculum introduces subjects and skills in a carefully considered sequence to support and nurture the natural development of children. We strive to keep the wonder and excitement of childhood alive and to spark each individual’s passion for learning. Adapts to unique styles and needs: Because children learn differently, our curriculum is written to accommodate a variety of visual, auditory, and physical styles. We offer options to fit each child’s interests, talents, styles, and needs so that they may learn easily, successfully, and enjoyably. Promotes caring, supportive relationships: Children are intelligent, creative beings eager to ask questions and express new ideas. Our curriculum encourages families to create a network of learning relationships—friends, family members, community resources, other homeschooling families, Oak Meadow teachers and educational counselors—to nourish and support the young learner.

    Accepts International Students / International Students can Enroll: yes - UMGA students learn in a secure, nurturing, bully-free zone which allows students to focus on their studies and build friendships with classmates from around the world.

    Additional Information: At UMGA, our approach to online learning is as unique as our students. We start by recognizing each student as an individual. We purposely shun mass-produced learning stylized after 19th and 20th-century factory models which started with the same measure of raw material and outputted the same finished product. Instead, we acknowledge and celebrate students’ individual abilities, talents, and interests and create a learning environment which is engaging and allows them to thrive. UMGA’s 21st-century learning model melds the highest quality teaching with engaging curriculum and opportunities for students to interact and share with classmates from around the country and around the world. Next, we ensure an adequate use of technology to aid the learning process, not overshadow it. UMGA does not view its use of technology as the focus of learning. Rather, it sees technology as a pathway, or conduit, which grows learning communities regardless of time or space. That is how online learning works at UMGA.

    Curriculum / Careers: Course Content: Grades 7-12 NOTE: Difficulty and content increases as students move through one four year rotation to the next. For example: the subject for a student's 7th grade History class may be the same as their 11th grade year but the content and difficulty will be completely different. SCIENCE The study of science should lead us to a greater reverence and testimony of God's handiwork. “All things testify of me... ,” said Moses (6:63) and science is not exempt from this declaration. Our approach prepares students for the theories of the world but examines them through the lens of revealed knowledge Year One - Life Science Category ASTRONOMY: (9 - 12 grades) This classical but current approach to the ever-changing science of Astronomy includes the study of the sun and stars, the phases of the moon, the constellations, how Passover and Easter were derived, and strives to share the wonder of the universe as described by Moses and Abraham. The Pearl of Great Price is part of the curriculum. EARTH SCIENCE: (7 - 8 grades) Students will discuss the atmosphere, hydrosphere, weather, the structure of the Earth, the physics of motion, Newton's Laws, gravity, Astrophysics, and much more. There are many hands-on experiments to do, which all use household chemicals. Year Two - Physical Science Category EARTH SCIENCE: (9 - 12 grades) Earth Science is the study of our planet and all its components: land, water, atmosphere, and interior. Some of this course is designed to focus on the processes that shape lands and impact people. It will also depict the processes of the atmosphere and its relationship to the planet's surface and all living creatures. It will focus on the hand of God in all of creation and the stewardship given to man by God for the betterment of life on Earth. Geology, Oceanography, Meteorology, and Astronomy are all discussed. LIFE SCIENCE: (7 -8 grades) Students alternate between a physical science and a life science each year. The Life Sciences comprise the scientific study of living organisms, such as plants, animals, and human beings. Year Three - Life Science Category BIOLOGY: (9 - 12 grades) This branch of science investigates the study of life: plants, animals, and God's greatest creation - humans. Students will study the characteristics, classifications, and behaviors of organisms. They will also study the needs and functional processes common to all living organisms and discuss the interactions species have with each other and the environment. The Word of Wisdom and our stewardship over God's creations are discussed. EARTH SCIENCE: (7 - 8 grades) Students will discuss the atmosphere, hydrosphere, weather, the structure of the Earth, the physics of motion, Newton's Laws, gravity, Astrophysics, and much more. There are many hands-on experiments to do, which all use household chemicals. Year Four - Physical Science Category CHEMISTRY: (9 -12 grades) This class covers the basic principles of Chemistry, such as atoms and atomic structure, how elements bond together, chemicals, the Periodic Table, and the development of organized problem-solving. This class also highlights how Divine Law and organization are discoverable by scientific inquiry. Classes will have regular experiments to recreate discoveries both simple and complex. LIFE SCIENCE: (7 -8 grades) Students alternate between a physical science and a life science each year. The Life Sciences comprise the scientific study of living organisms, such as plants, animals, and human beings. LANGUAGE ARTS Our classical, skills-based approach to Language Arts for 7 - 12 grade students concentrates on critical thinking in reading and writing, as well as grammar and writing skills to prepare a student to read, critique, and respond to any type of literature. The result is they will be prepared to read any text they encounter, analyze it, and then write about it. Students will also learn to read and understand how the scriptures are written and what they mean in terms of literature and history. During the four year rotation, students will look at the four basic ways to critique a text. They will study genres, themes and symbols, rhetoric, and the history of English. Students write an average of four portfolio-quality papers per year and participate in brain-storming, thought questions, note-taking, vocabulary building, grammar modeling, short answer, in-class essay writing, and speech related exercises. Students will read an average of six classic texts a year, including the scriptures. Our grammar series is written in an LDS context and provides a foundation for successful writing in all academic subjects or professional circumstances, especially for taking the ACT exam. Our 7 - 8 grade students alternate between years one and two. Year One - Genre Studies / Liahona Grammar Vol. 1 Students study different types of literature, which have been historically important such as the difference between fiction and biography, essay and discourse, and narrative versus expository writing. Using Formalism, Comparative Literature, and other appropriate literary theories, students will consider how a text is written and how its form contributes to the overall meaning of the text. This study will help students discern and select uplifting and wholesome literature and better understand the scriptures. This will also prepare them for writing and reading in college. Year Two - Themes and Symbols / Liahona Grammar Vol. 2 Looking at archetypes, themes, and symbols, students will better understand the scriptures and classical literature. The Old Testament, classic novels, epic poems, and dramas are used to familiarize students with themes and symbols, such as the heroic cycle, freedom, the plan of salvation, etc. Students will compare and analyze repeating patterns of symbols and themes throughout literature. Again, this study will help students discern and select uplifting and wholesome literature and better understand the scriptures. This will also prepare them for writing and reading in college. Year Three - Argument and Rhetorical Techniques / Liahona Grammar Vol. 3 Students will consider how writing is constructed to be interesting and persuasive. This will also help students discern truth from error in arguments, so they will not easily be deceived. The Book of Mormon, speeches, essays, and novella-length works are used to develop critical thinking and rhetorical writing skills. Student will polish their own writing to be clear, precise, and effective. Year Four - History of Language and Literature / Liahona Grammar Vol. 4 This course of study analyzes the history and events which have shaped literature. The New Testament and interesting novels and poems are used to illustrate how language has changed. Students will discover why there are so many exceptions to grammar rules and how to use language to effectively develop their own ideas. This helps students recognize patterns and learn from past events and literature. HISTORY The goal of our history class is for students to understand D&C 101: 77-80: God suffered this land and our Constitution to be established and it should be maintained for the rights and privileges of all flesh, according to just and holy principles. Year One - American Government and Civics The divine origin of our Constitution, the government it established, and the privileges it guarantees will be studied. Original source documents such as those from Wycliffe, Knox and Huss of the Reformation to Jefferson, Washington, and Franklin of the American Revolution are analyzed. Comments from prophets and apostles regarding historical events and figures are included. Students discover how to be one of the "threads" that upholds the U.S. Constitution, as referred to by Joseph Smith. Year Two - American History I - Pre-Discovery to 1865 Using original documents, the personalities and events which created and shaped a new nation and then preserved the union are interwoven. Students will watch the hand of Providence unfold as they study the Native Americans, Viking discoveries, the establishment of colonies, Lexington, the great explorations of the West, and the Civil War. Latter-day Saint church history is woven into the course of events. Year Three - American History II - 1860 to Present Students will examine the opportunities and challenges faced by our country during the 19th to 21st centuries, such as the Civil War, World War I and II, the Great Depression, Korea, Vietnam, and 9/11. The year ends with scriptural prophecies about the last days. Latter-day Saint church history, prophecies and comments by prophets and apostles, and are woven into the course of latter-day events. Year Four - World Civilizations/Geography Students will study from ancient Israel up to Europe and the Reformation. Subjects include: the Roman and Byzantine empires, the Crusades, the Middle Ages, a study of Islam, breaking the bands of Catholicism and the steps needed for the Restoration of the Gospel. Students will explore the cause and effect of European influences upon the writings of the founding fathers, including Jefferson, Adams, and Wythe.

    Additional Information: Recognizing that the primary responsibility for education rests with parents (Psalm 78:5, 6), Liberty University Online Academy serves as an extension of the family to aid parents in this task. The philosophy of Liberty University Online Academy is based on the premise that man’s ultimate purpose is to glorify God (I Corinthians 6:19, 20; 10:31). The Academy exists to help students reach their full potential by guiding them and developing them spiritually, morally, personally, socially and academically (Luke 2:52). LUOA teachers and administrative staff must be born-again Christians who are consciously committed to Jesus Christ, knowing their lives serve as examples to those whom they teach. The faculty and staff recognize that only when a student accepts Christ as Savior and yields to His lordship can he realize his own unique potential (Romans 10:10-13). Education and learning are biblical imperatives (Deuteronomy 6:6-7; Proverbs 3:1-9); therefore, all instruction is biblically-based (Deuteronomy 4:2-9). Specific content grows from the following: God’s mandate at creation for mankind to have dominion over the earth (Genesis 1:1; 26-28), requiring learning in the areas of language, mathematics, the physical and natural sciences, technology and fine arts. The hostile environment resulting from the Fall of man (Genesis 3:9-24), intensifying his need to understand all areas of general curriculum, as well as the social sciences, health sciences and the study of God’s written word. The command for Christians to evangelize the lost and to disciple believers (Matthew 28:18-20), underscoring the need to learn all of the above disciplines.

Since the start of the dual-diploma program in 2002, over 1,400 students have graduated with a Texas high school diploma. In 2014, we established our first partner school in China. We currently have several students in the program working towards a Texas high school diploma.

    College credit: Orange Lutheran’s Advanced Placement Program For those Orange Lutheran students prepared for university level academic challenges, we offer many Advanced Placement (AP) courses. The primary reason for students taking these courses is a desire to tackle a more rigorous intellectual challenge. These courses are essentially college courses offered in a high school setting and each of our instructors and the accompanying course have gone through a rigorous process to become approved by the College Board. The AP Exams are given on nationally prescribed dates in May. Grades are assigned on a basis of 1-5 with a 3 or higher generally considered to be passing scores. Many colleges give credit for a score of 3, 4, or 5. However, it is worthy to note that an increasing number of colleges will only give credit for a 4 or 5. Each university typically has its own criteria for accepting AP exam scores.

Types of Online High Schools

Because these cyber schools are far from mainstream, most of the population knows little to nothing about the different kinds of schools.

Free versus Paid

The first big distinction between online high schools is a question of funding. Some schools are operated by the state school district and provide free tuition and admission. Quite often these virtual schools are classified as state charter schools. Things get a little messier when school districts establish contracts with education management organizations.

Education Management Organizations

These are usually abbreviated EMO, and it is not surprising if you’ve never heard of them before. That’s because EMO’s are the behind-the-scenes organizations that operate virtual schools. They are usually for-profit organizations. Therefore, the state could contract and EMO to provide the students of their district with an alternative education option. In this scenario, the EMO might be profiting, but the state would fund the school meaning that tuition would be free.

Private Online Schools

Think about Private online high schools just like you would a regular private school. You will pay tuition. Your child might not get excepted. The school can be back by a religious organization. The school can use any curriculum they see fit. The school does not have to use the state-issued curriculum. Online private schools offer all the benefits of an online school with even more options and flexibility than a state funded school. The only downside is usually the price tag. These are the most common type of online school and often target gifted students and homeschooling students.

Common Online High School Models

Depending on your state, the available options for online schools will change. Here are descriptions of names you might see:

“Virtual Academies”

Speaking broadly, these schools will always be state-wide and are the most common type of state-funded virtual school. The teachers and curriculum will be state credentialed and accredited.

“Home School Program”

A home school program is a private online school that offers curriculum and guidance for homeschoolers that don’t want to bear the full educational responsibility of “schooling” their children. Because these are private programs, you need to check your local state laws and regulations to ensure this is a legal option.

“Insight Schools”

These schools are specifically designed to assist students that need lots of support. Expect these schools to have counselors that are highly supportive and trained to help your family overcome unique obstacles.

“Blended Schools”

As the name suggests, these schools are “blended.” The most popular blended school model is K12’s Flex Academy. These academies use an onsite location that utilizes an online curriculum. Many of the draws of an online education are lost because students are required to attend the physical location 5 days a week.

“Career Academies”

As the name suggests, Career Academies and Career Programs are designed to prepare their graduates for the workforce. Emphasis is placed on real-world application and each school usually has areas of expertise. In addition to a high school diploma, these academies will often grant students certificates for their extra hands-on learning.

Accredited Online High Schools

If the accreditation process for an online high school has confused you, you’re not alone. It is extremely confusing. Why? Each state has unique requirements. Some online schools are accredited in their “home” state, but not nationally. There is no such thing as a national accreditation for a high school. Articles that claim this have confused online high school with online college. Therefore, you need to check that the school is accredited in your state. Alternatively, sometimes families will need to be classified as homeschoolers and use the online school to provide all the necessary documentation.

Demographics

Who benefits the most from a cyber school? In some ways, the audience demographics are like the homeschool population. In fact, homeschooled students sometimes transition into an online high school and many programs market to homeschooling families.

Students with Complicated Schedules

The flexibility coupled with little to no necessary parental involvement is easily the biggest draw for an online high school. Therefore, high school students with lots of schedule conflicts are the best candidates. For example, online schools are often full of elite athletes, dedicated musicians, child actors, aspiring artists, young entrepreneurs, gifted learners, animal breeders, and students who are required to travel frequently.

AP Students

Students that outperform their peers often look to online high schools to benefit from advanced placement courses and classes that will translate into college credit.

Military Families

Because military families are often required to frequently relocate, attending a brick-and-mortar school is often difficult for the children. Transferring to a new school every year or two is less than ideal. There is no need to Hunt for a new school every few years, and the student no longer needs to make (often painful) adjustments to fit in and get to know their new teachers.

Employed Adults

Working adults who were unable to finish high school can earn a high school diploma by attending and online school without needing to quit their job or request special hours. A high school diploma helps adults advance their careers and is the key to finding better employment options.

The Trend of Online Learning

Online learning is growing. Fast.

The Trend Started in Universities

The trend started in colleges and is trickling down to K-12 education. Nationally, more than 5.8 million college/university students are taking online courses. Over ¼ of college students are enrolled in 1 or more online courses. Every college has recognized that online learning is of critical importance to their long-term strategy.

The Trend in K12

Virtual schools are booming. Today, millions of students in K12 (not just 9-12 grades) receive all their schooling online. Over the 2009-2010 school year, 1.5 million students received their education online. In 2013-2014 that number grew to 2.7 million. Yep, that’s an 80% increase. Today, 75% of U.S. school districts offer some type of mixed or online courses for their K12 students.
