- ANSWERS TO YOUR QUESTIONS -

1. How long will it take me to complete a course?

Our program is specifically designed for independent study. How fast you complete each course depends totally on you. However, keep in mind that the faster you finish the faster you can take charge of your future. Each course should be completed within a quarter or faster.

2. Will students have flexibility to complete a course at their own pace?

Students have tremendous flexibility around how quickly or slowly they proceed through a course with our self-study courses. With our online courses students have some flexibility pending approval of the support teacher (parent) and class teacher.

3. Are there limits as to how quickly or slowly a student can finish a course?

Our policy is that a full credit course should be completed within a quarter for all home students. Our self-study full credit courses should ideally be completed within a calendar year. Extensions beyond a year for our self-study courses are available.

4. Do I have to take courses in a certain order?
