James Madison High School, a leading provider of accredited online high school diploma courses, is now making its online high school algebra courses available as a single course option to those seeking credit recovery options. Students needing to fulfill these math requirements can choose from pre-algebra, algebra I, or algebra II.
Students enroll in online high schools like James Madison (http://www.jmhs.com/) for a number of reasons. By allowing students the option to enroll in single courses versus the entire high school program, current high school students or high school drop-outs now have the opportunity to gain credit toward completing a high school diploma program. Whether a student needs to make up a few credits or an entire semester, credit recovery through JMHS simplifies catching up or getting ahead.
“There are many advantages to taking online high school courses,” said Dr. Leslie Gargiulo, James Madison High School’s Chief Academic Officer. “Students can make up required credits without attending summer school, complete their education while managing family or work obligations, even take classes that might not be offered at their primary high school.”
According to the Center for Public Education, credit recovery programs allow struggling students to work at their own pace. Single course options like James Madison's could appeal to the 43% of dropouts who believe they missed too many days and could not catch up, or the 35% who say that “failing in school” was a major factor for dropping out.
James Madison online high school diploma courses follow one of two academic tracks – general or college prep and for those wanting to complete their diploma program with James Madison, it accepts transfer credits from previous high schools. The regionally and nationally accredited school is one of the first to be 100% compliant with The Common Core State Standards -- well in advance of the 2014 implementation deadline.
