You’re not alone if you’re learning English but you’re not sure what you can do to quickly boost your language skills. In 2019, the U.S. Department of Education reported that around 5.1 million students were English learners, and the U.S. Census Bureau reported in the same year that about 1 in 5 people speak a second language at home. That means that up to 68 million people in the U.S. speak English as their second language while they speak another language as their primary.
Setting Smart Goals For 2023
The new year is here, so that means students from all over and watching their calendars waiting for the end of the school year. Online students who have more flexible schedules are no different than anyone else, and they’re ready for their school year to wind down, too. The trouble arises when you realizes that even though you’re partway done with your school year, you’ve still got more ahead of you! How can you keep your motivation up and your trajectory aimed at your academic or your personal goals as you work your way through 2023?
How To Tell Your Parents You Want To Go To School Online
Young people around the globe got a taste of the flexibility and lower social pressure of attending school online during the pandemic, and although some students couldn’t wait to get back to in-person classes, others wanted nothing more than to continue attending class online. If you’re one of those students for who prefer the lower social pressure and self-paced options of online school, you might be ready to talk to your parents about a change of academic environment. Excel High School has been serving our online students since 2004, and our experience has led us to some helpful tips for how to tell your parents that you want to attend online school.
The Difference Between The 21.5 & The 24 Credit Track
Earning your high school diploma opens up plenty of opportunities for you, whether you’re heading off to college or university, joining the military, or jumping right into a career after graduation.

Back To School Is Here – What Does That Mean For Online Students?
All the big stores are playing their back-to-school ads. Parents and students are heading to the stores to grab notebooks, uniforms, writing utensils, art supplies…all the things that get crammed into backpacks and lockers in preparation for the first day of school. Online students with Excel Middle and High Schools don’t have to worry so much about their exact back to school start dates, but if you’re trying to model your school year with those of the school district in your area, then it’s back to school for you, too!
Public vs Private School In An Online Environment
No one cares about your child’s education more than you do! So if you’re looking for an alternative to the traditional public school option, your next move might be to investigate your online options. Depending on where you live, you might have online public school options, but no matter where you live, you always have the option of enrolling your student in an online private school. So what’s the difference?
What To Do If Your Child Is Struggling With Online School?
Online schooling offers many positive experiences for your student. They have time to explore hobby and career interests or the option to travel to see family without interrupting their schoolwork. But what do you do when your student is struggling: falling behind, constantly distracted, or generally unmotivated?
Excel High School’s staff has worked with students who jump into their program and find success right away, but we’ve also worked with struggling students who aren’t quite sure how to move forward successfully. Here are some important steps we’ve found to help struggling students find their way in their online curriculum.
Summer Is Coming! Avoid The Summer Slide
Ah, summer! Time for the kids to put away their schoolwork and stare at a screen…or two…or three for the next couple of months. Of course, if you want to avoid the summer slide where your children lose some of their academic progress and just sort of let their brains atrophy for the summer, then you might need to get creative with your approach. Giving teens a way to use some of their time constructively can help your children keep their brains fresh and active until school starts.
