Online Courses

Our online credits are taught by experienced online educators and offer the perfect blend of synchronous and asynchronous activities to keep learners engaged and on track. Weekly synchronous lessons and multiple extra help opportunities allow students to interact with their teacher and check their learning in real time.

Independent asynchronous tasks allow students to work at their own pace and organize their time in a way that works with their own schedule. All synchronous activities will be recorded and available to any students who are unable to attend a live lesson. 

Our online credits are a fantastic option for students wishing to take control of their own learning. Courses will begin January 24, 2022, and will finish June 10, 2022. 

Please note: Each program has limited space. Minimum numbers must be reached to run our summer school programs. Students will be responsible for purchasing required online textbooks.
