Virtual Homeschooling vs. Online Public School
Many parents confuse virtual school with homeschooling. It’s understandable. Both methods involve learning from home. Both methods accommodate flexible schedules. Both methods require personal involvement from parents. Yet, there are key differences that can make an online public school an excellent alternative to homeschooling for students in grades K–12.
With online homeschooling programs, the parent serves as the child’s teacher for all subjects. He or she researches the curriculum, develops the assignments, and grades all student work. At an online public school, certified teachers develop a personalized learning plan for each student, and periodically meet with students for real-time instruction and lessons in the virtual classroom. They also grade assignments, quizzes, and provide ongoing feedback to students by phone and email.
Is an Online Public School Diploma Recognized?
Many students attending accredited homeschool programs are required to take the GED exam to earn a credential recognized in higher education and the workforce. Students graduating from a Connections Academy-supported virtual public school can earn an official high school diploma without this extra step, and are well prepared for college, career, and life. As an alternative to an accredited homeschool program for k-12 students, Connections Academy is a wonderful option for parents who want to be a part of their students education.
