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.

You’ve completed first semester, and your final grades are recorded. In fact, semester two is in full swing, so you’ve probably already got your eye on the calendar for summer. If you’re ready to prepare for your summer courses, whether it’s to get ahead or make up some credits you missed, online summer school is a great option to investigate.
Technology has made research for academic writing really simple, but it also has made copying and pasting other people’s work a lot easier as well. One of the most important lessons students at Excel High School need to know is what plagiarism is and how to avoid it. Once you understand these concepts, you will be able to successfully navigate academic writing for your online courses.
Online education offers a lot of freedom for your family. With flexible timelines and schedules, you and your children have the opportunity to visit family, experience cultural events, and tailor their class time to suit your needs in a way that traditional schools simply cannot do. However, one aspect of online school that requires a bit more attention is the topic of academic integrity. Academic integrity refers to your commitment to honest and moral behavior in an academic setting.
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?
Many experts recommend that students start preparing for the SAT® as early as the eighth grade and make their first attempt at the test as a sophomore in high school. Why should your student start so early? The SAT® isn’t like any other standardized test that your student has been exposed to, and since they can use their best scores as submissions to whatever college or university they’d like to attend, this is great advice. With many colleges and universities still expecting students to submit their scores prior to admission, earlier is better when it comes to SAT® prep.
