1. How much does online high school cost?
In Arizona, all public charter schools are tuition free. So long as the school is not private, no tuition will be charged.
2. How do I transfer from another school?
To switch to any school, you will need to submit your transcript records, which your previous school should provide for you. From there, the transferring process varies for each school.
3. What will my courses look like?
While daily coursework will vary within each school, the majority of online curriculum is interactive and tailored to the student. Generally, students attend online live teaching sessions where they will learn the material and engage in “classroom” discussions. Many schools will also have online workbooks and lessons for students to read and study independently.
4. Will I get to interact with classmates?
While this can be a great concern for students and parents, online students will get just as much socialization as traditional schools. Most online schools hold in-person and have chat rooms monitored by the school for students to connect with classmates in a safe, inviting way.
5. How will I communicate with my teachers?
In Arizona, public charter schools should have the same qualifications as traditional teachers. Without the turmoil of 30 or more kids in a classroom at once, online teachers are able to provide more one-on-one support to their students through online tutoring sessions, phone calls and emails. Additionally, some online schools will have another feature for students to contact teachers.
