Why JMHS is Right For Your Child

Parents

We encourage parent involvement with online high school programs at James Madison High School. You want the best education for your child's future — and so do we. Whether your goal is to enable your child to apply to college or qualify for a better career, we believe JMHS offers an ideal way to earn a high school diploma. We serve students in many situations, including traditional students, homeschoolers and students seeking credit recovery.

1. A Quality Accredited Curriculum

JMHS is regionally accredited by SACS CASI, a widely recognized high school accrediting agency. This assures you of a high standard of quality in terms of our course content, overall curriculum, academic policies, enrollment procedures and instructional guidance.

2. A Distraction-Free Learning Environment

At JMHS your child studies independently 100% online. Free from the social challenges and peer pressures associated with being a traditional student in the typical high school setting, JMHS students can focus on learning.

Maybe your child is an accelerated learner and feels held back by other classmates. Or, perhaps your child has been bullied, is falling behind, has family responsibilities or simply needs more time to absorb the subject matter. JMHS can help.

3. Self-Paced Courses for Custom-Fit Study

At JMHS your child learns at his or her own comfortable pace. The structured schedules of classroom-based schooling do not accommodate diverse study styles or speeds. At JMHS, your child can moves faster in some subjects and delve more deeply into others. There are no set log-on times, so your child is free to create a customized study routine.

4. Convenient Credit Recovery and Transfer

At JMHS your child can earn make-up credits in single courses. Besides our 9th – 12th grade curriculum, your child can enroll in single courses to make up credits. Maybe your child missed classes, failed a class, or needs to take a course or two to graduate. Choosing our individual-course option makes perfect sense. Check with your local school system in advance to confirm acceptance of JMHS transfer credits.

5. Personal Academic Guidance

Students in traditional high school classrooms may find teachers unapproachable or too busy to provide the extra help they need. At JMHS, it's a whole different story! Your child can request one-on-one tutoring any time, online or by email or phone. Students also benefit from personal interaction with our certified teachers who are always willing to give students guidance.

6. Great for Homeschoolers
