Why JMHS is Right For Your Child
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 nationally accredited by both Cognia and the Distance Education Accrediting Commission (DEAC). Cognia offers accreditation and certification, assessment, professional learning, and improvement services to institutions and other education providers. As a global nonprofit working in over 80 countries, Cognia serves 36,000 institutions, nearly 25 million students, and five million educators every day. Cognia is the parent organization of the North Central Association Commission on Accreditation and School Improvement (NCA CASI), Northwest Accreditation Commission (NWAC) and the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Council on Accreditation and School Improvement (SACS CASI). Together, these organizations have been accrediting institutions for more than 125 years.
2. A Distraction-Free Learning Environment
At JMHS your child studies online independently. 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.
Our curriculum is designed to make it easy for you to supervise your child's studies, monitor daily progress, and guide him or her to success. We encourage parent involvement! Call 1-800-349-6861 or enroll online now.
