Hundreds of high schools are letting students take courses on the Internet. Usually, these are courses that are not offered at the school. Could this work for your teen? Here are a few tips if you are considering online education:
Consider your teen’s personality. Does he like working independently? Is he motivated? Then he may do well in an online course.
Have your teen check with his guidance counselor to find out if his school, your school district or a local community college offers courses online. Ask if your teen is eligible for the program.
Remind your teen that he shouldn’t take an online course to get an easy grade. Online courses can be challenging. He’ll need self-discipline and a commitment to completing work on time.
