Traditionally, we think of high school classes as part of a full curriculum that need to be taken together, instead of as stand-alone classes that can be taken on their own. But James Madison High School knows not every student has the same needs and sometimes just wants, or requires, a single course. That’s why you can enroll in individual high school classes instead of a full program.
The option to take individual high school courses is sometimes a necessary one, though not often thought of until the need arises. There are many reasons why an individual course rather than a full curriculum might better suit your needs or desires. Some of the reasons James Madison High School’s self-paced, online courses might be right for you include:
Studying an individual course can be helpful at all stages of your schooling. They can be started at any point during the year, with work being completed online throughout the day or during the evenings at your own pace, so you can choose when, where, and how to study that best works for you. Besides being a convenient option if you need to make up missed or failed classes, they can also help you get ahead if you have extra time during summer or winter breaks and are looking to graduate early.
Additionally, individual courses can benefit different types of learners. If you’re a student who does better focusing on one subject at a time, you can enroll in individual courses in order to focus on and master one subject at a time before moving on to the next, instead of studying six or seven at once like you would in a traditional school. Or perhaps there’s one subject area that’s more of a struggle to learn as a homeschool student or to teach as a parent to a homeschool student. That class can be supplemented with a JMHS individual course.
Whether you’re homeschooling, need additional credits, or have courses left to complete, JMHS has selected specific classes that are part of traditional public school core subject areas for students to choose from on an individual basis, such as:
If you’re planning to work ahead for an early graduation or are looking for more of a challenge, there are also college prep classes like American History, World History, American History & Economics, Biology, and English to help prepare you for further academic study.
