Comparing the Tracks: General High School Diploma vs. College Prep Diploma

With a new year, it’s easy to focus on the “new” rather than finishing what you’ve started. But for some of you, now is the perfect time to continue your education and reach an attainable goal. Whether you are an online high school student looking to finish up your education for college, or an adult who never completed high school, one such goal is to earn your high school diploma.

If the responsibilities of your busy life do not allow you to go to night classes or attend a brick and mortar school, consider the online high school diploma. With James Madison High School, you can work toward your online high school diploma on your time, from the comfort of your home, even if you work full-time.

Choosing the online high school route is a great first step, but next you’ll have to choose which path to take. There are two different online high school diploma tracks at James Madison High School, and it’s important to choose the one that’s best for you.

James Madison High School Diploma Tracks

The two tracks offered at James Madison High School are the General High School Diploma track, and the College Prep Diploma track. What’s the difference? Let’s break them down.

If you want to fulfill your goal of earning your high school diploma, open up career opportunities, or wish to get into community college, junior college or even a technical college, the General High School Diploma will meet your needs. This track can help increase your confidence and move you forward in your everyday work.

If you have bigger dreams of going to a four-year college one day and seek a very rigorous high school education to help you succeed, then the College Prep Diploma is for you. The courses are much more in-depth, and help you create the discipline you’ll need for college work.

Both of James Madison High School’s online diplomas are regionally and nationally accredited and come with academic advisors, state certified teachers and tutors–so you really can’t go wrong either way.
