Private Online School Lets Students in Grades 6-12 Gain Credits from Home During Summer
HERNDON, Va., June 18, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Keystone School, an accredited, private online school for grades 6-12, has opened enrollment for summer programs aimed at students who want to catch up or get ahead with courses.
The Keystone School uses an independent study model designed for self-learners who seek a highly flexible education, with support from teachers and other academic staff available as needed. Courses are self-paced and can be completed over the summer months.
Students can choose from an impressive catalog of more than 170 high school, middle school and credit recovery courses, including core subjects such as English, Social Studies and Algebra as well as AP and world languages. All courses are credit bearing and students can graduate with a diploma. Over the past 40 years Keystone has served more than 250,000 students and has seen its graduates continue on to careers or post-secondary education at institutions such as Duke, Stanford, Yale and Notre Dame.
The Keystone Credit Recovery Program helps students in grades 6-12 who need to earn credit for a failed course. More than 90% of students currently enrolled in this program complete the work needed to receive credit. However courses provided by The Keystone School have also proven popular with students who are interested in getting ahead for the new school year.
"It's a common misconception that summer school is strictly a time for students to recover credit lost due to failing a course. At Keystone we certainly help students do that, but parents and schools should also be thinking about helping students get ahead in credits or taking courses that may not be offered to them at their traditional school," said Lisa McClure, Head of School at The Keystone School. "Taking supplementary courses over the summer is a great option for students wishing to accelerate their high school completion."
Students can learn a new language, explore career-building electives and personal enrichment courses or simply study topics that interest them. Courses are self-paced and delivered online, making them readily accessible from home or during family vacations.
"Flexibility is the foundation of our approach – we tailor to the individual learner. Students can log in and do their work at any time of the day or night, and receive support from certified teachers as they need it. It's also a great way for students to build the independent study habits they will need to be successful later in life," said McClure.
Courses provided by The Keystone School are affordably priced and multi-course discounts are available. For more information on full-time or summer program enrollment, or to register for an upcoming open house in your area, visit http://keystoneschoolonline.com.
