As you get closer to finishing high school, people can’t seem to stop asking “what do you plan to do with the rest of your life?” That’s a big question to answer. It can even be a little scary - if what you choose to do after high school decides the rest of your life, will a “mistake’ set you back? Before going into a full-on panic about what will happen after graduation, here’s how you can start deciding what you want to do when you finish your diploma.

Online homeschooling your student often works similarly to traditional homeschooling. Your child will study the same subjects students in a public school setting learn, but in the more comfortable environment of your home. The biggest difference is often that, when using an online school, you don’t have to play the role of teacher for your student. While you can act as support, study buddy, and task manager by encouraging your child to ask for help and stay on track with their studies, you don’t have to stress about making sure you’re teaching them the right subjects. But before you are ready to sign your child up for online homeschool, here’s what you should know about how it works.

Deciding which high school electives you should take involves knowing what your school offers, what your goals are after high school, and how rigorous you want your courses to be.

Here’s why electives are important and how to decide which classes are right for you.

Earning your diploma is essential to finding a job and pursuing a college degree or career after graduation. Traditional high school - going to a physical school every day, sitting in a classroom with other students in your grade - isn’t going to work for you, though. So, the next step is searching for a homeschooling or online option. You don’t want to start from the beginning; the thought of repeating things you’ve completed seems frustrating. With transfer credits, however, you can pick up where you left off! Here’s what you need to know about transferring your credits to James Madison High School.

Summer vacation means months away from school, sleeping in, and family trips for students who attend traditional schools. There are long days of swimming or relaxing, or adventures with friends. It’s something that every school-aged kid looks forward to! But if you’re an online high school student enrolled in a self-paced program, do you get a summer break?
