The Role of Parental Involvement in High School
One of the hallmarks of the Great Lakes Cyber Academy (GLCA) online school program is parental involvement. A parent’s (or other trusted adult’s) daily involvement in student learning shows teens that education is a top priority and helps ensure their success. There are many benefits to this level of involvement in education, such as improved grades and test scores, higher graduation rates, and greater enrollment in postsecondary education. At GLCA, the person who supports the teen’s education in the home is called a Learning Coach.
