What is an online high school?
An online high school is a formal educational process by means of electronic transmission that aims to meet the needs of the student. Students who want to balance study and work are able to hold a job while earning a high school diploma that is equivalent to those earned by students attending full-time high schools. Online high schools are an attractive option for working people, those following their dreams and aspirations and who cannot attend school, or those who for various reasons had to withdraw from school.
