  • When I can take virtual classes and traditional classes in the same semester?

    Posted by:

    Students have the option to take their virtual course on or off campus. If the course is scheduled at the beginning or end of the school day, a student can choose one of the following options: either to arrive late or to leave early to complete their online course off-campus. If the online course is scheduled during the middle of the day, students should take their online course on-campus. Students cannot leave in the middle of the school day and return later during the school day.

  • For a yearlong class, can I take both semesters at once?

    Posted by:

    Typically, no. Most courses have content in the second semester that builds on material from first semester (This is especially true in the mathematics courses). There are a few courses whose content in the two terms do not depend on each other as much. Speak with your counselor for recommendations for the course(s) you are considering.
