Students in our online high school Honors courses can expect to work harder and commit more time to their studies. Students will engage in independent research and in-depth exploration of concepts to sharpen their critical thinking skills. For example, Honors English and history courses will require advanced reading and writing assignments. Honors English will focus more on literary analysis and vocabulary development, while Honors history will study the people, events, and ideas that shaped the past. Students in each will develop their ability to question, analyze, interpret information, and communicate ideas to others.
Students enrolled in Honors math and science classes will be introduced to many advanced concepts. They will also have the opportunity to study concepts in-depth and apply them to real life situations. Honors math courses also present a variety of problem-solving strategies, as well as real-world applications and technologies. Hands-on and virtual lab experiments along with complete interdisciplinary problem-solving activities give Honors science students the ability to learn science by doing science.
Additionally, students who take honors courses in high school become part of a community of dedicated learners, with opportunities to participate in discussions and group projects with other students enrolled in Honors courses.
