VIRTUAL SCHOOLSimages.jpeg
40,000 to 50,000 kids in 37 different states are enrolled in virtual school
a growing education trend

Backgroundimages-1.jpeg
Most kids choose a more traditional route for education, and physically
attend college. However, with the technology age growing, it is becoming
more popular for kids to get their college credits, by taking classes online.

Why? images-2.jpeg
It is more conveniant for some kids to have a job, and at the same time earn
credits. Students are given their assignments and lessons online, and their are
usually 100 people in a class.
