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!
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?
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.
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.
Learning online is one of the best ways to give gifted students the ability to soar. For students who are driven, curious, and tired of the distractions of a traditional classroom, Excel High School’s online programs are an easy choice. Our programs can provide either a faster pace or more advanced courses, leaving students with the opportunity to pursue other interests or even graduate early and move on to their post-secondary education.

Movies, TV Shows, YouTube channels, and book series have all been dedicated to the high school experience. Sure they’re fun to watch or read, but most of them don’t show the real experience. The drama of those high school shows or books are fun, but they don’t really prepare you for the parts of high school outside of the social aspects. Sure, navigating the social side of your transition is important, but what about academics?
You’re motivated and ready to move past high school and on to your next life adventure, but your traditional high school won’t help you move as quickly as you’d like. Excel High School is a great choice for you! For students who want to graduate early, we offer a truly self-paced program and support along the way.
