We take full advantage of the scalability of online technology to deliver a broader, more relevant array of options in engaging and varied ways. That includes using videos and interactive activities as well as more traditional study techniques. At Sterling Academy, one course credit is equivalent to two semesters of study in a subject. Our school offers flexible grade-level completion timelines based on students’ needs.
Studying through an online high school like Sterling Academy gives you complete flexibility. You should expect to spend a comparable amount of time on schoolwork as you would attending a brick-and-mortar school. However, at Sterling Academy, exactly when you study is up to you. It’s a different way of studying, one that integrates chapter content with video lectures, hands-on exercises and a variety of other teaching formats. That won’t necessarily make your schoolwork easier, but it certainly makes your entire learning experience more interesting and engaging.
And here’s another bonus: our certified teachers are caring individuals dedicated to helping you succeed. Because course material is delivered via our online curriculum, teachers can spend their time one-on-one to help when you need extra assistance.
Sterling Academy is specifically geared toward every type of student. If you learn quickly, you can progress quickly. If you need more time to absorb and truly master certain concepts or subjects, you have that time. You’re in control.
That doesn’t mean there are no rules – you will still be expected to reach achievement milestones you and your teachers have agreed upon. But if your goal is to graduate from high school as quickly as possible so you can get on with advanced education or get into the job market, you can make that happen. Or you can progress at a traditional pace and graduate with your “class.” And if your study schedule is subject to interruptions due to health challenges or other aspects of your personal life, you can still continue to move forward steadily with your education.
That makes online high school an ideal choice for virtually any type of student.
You cannot get a great education without top-quality learning materials. Sterling Academy is proud to use Edgenuity online curriculum, a program used by both public and private schools in all 50 states. We take full advantage of online technology to deliver more diverse, more relevant and more engaging learning opportunities specifically designed to interest and motivate high school students. Courses may include video, audio and interactive activities as well as more traditional reading and writing assignments.
It’s not just our curriculum that sets Sterling Academy apart, it’s our team of knowledgeable, experienced and student-focused teachers. These are people who are top achievers in their fields, academically and in the “real” world. They know what they’re talking about, and they have that special characteristic so important for students – a sincere desire to help you learn.
Unlike attending a traditional high school, you are never at the mercy of overcrowded classrooms or rigid daily schedules that make it tough to interact in a meaningful way with teachers.
