We’ve also identified and included more than 1000 online colleges and universities, and we are committed to growing our database to include new options as they emerge. The momentum and flexibility of online schooling, across the educational spectrum, warrants a deep and dedicated resource – and that is OnlineSchools.com.”

“As the interest in online education continues to increase, it’s important that our site provides families with valuable information to help them make informed choices,” said Restaino. “OnlineSchools.com evaluated feedback from parents, students and others in the online schooling community, and discovered plenty of questions to be answered. Our goal is to provide these answers.”
