What are the unique benefits of online learning?
Online learning provides an engaging and effective means to comprehend and achieve mastery of course content and earn credits toward graduation [PDF]. It also builds computer technology and higher-order thinking skills that are critical for success in today's digital age.
Particularly for the middle and high school years, online learning requires the ability to work independently and the discipline to stay on track. While online learning lets students set their own schedule, they must still progress at a pace that enables them to meet assignment and test deadlines and complete coursework within the semester.

Are self-motivated and exhibit maturity
Possess reading and writing skills at or above current grade level
Are willing to ask the teacher for help
Exhibit organizational and time management skills
Are comfortable using technology
Have realistic expectations of online learning courses
