How to Earn High School Credits Fast

Are you looking for a quick way to make up some high school credits over the summer?

Online high school is perfect for that!

Our individual courses are a popular solution for students from traditional high schools who need to make the most of summer break. The self-paced, online format easily fits into a summer schedule that’s filled with family vacations, summer jobs, and other adventures that would otherwise be co-opted by required attendance at a brick-and-mortar summer school location. But, the very best part? A course may be completed in as few as 6 weeks–how’s that for fast?

How Does Online Summer School Work?

James Madison High School makes it very easy to take our individual online classes.

A student may enroll online and begin coursework at any time. Lessons, ebooks, academic tutoring, the Online Resource Center, and voluntary weekly live lessons are all accessed through our Student Portal. All that’s required to attend online summer school are a computer and an internet connection. There’s no daily schedule. No parking. No pop quizzes.

The cost of a single course is $299 and tuition may be paid all at once or on a payment plan. Some courses may require the additional purchase of a lab kit.

Each course equals one unit (or one high school credit) upon completion. If you’re not sure about transferring credits, please confirm with the receiving school’s academic advisors that they will accept the credit for your work from James Madison High School before you enroll with us.
