If you’re an adult who is ready to complete your high school diploma, online study at James Madison High School is the nationally- and regionally-accredited education solution you need.

As an adult, attending high school online allows you to balance your educational goal with work, family, and daily life instead of the other way around. You can continue your education on your terms, by self-pacing your studies according to your needs and enjoying class time at any time of day or night!

It doesn’t matter why you didn’t finish high school. What matters is that you are exploring ways to finally complete the work.

A General Diploma will suit your needs if you are an adult completing high school online to meet a work requirement or before attending trade or career school. A College Prep Diploma will provide a more comprehensive curriculum if you’re planning to attend college. Career Pathways gives you a high school diploma plus specialized job skills training.
