American Online High School
You can enrol in the American Online High School Program at JDJ International Open School and start learning any month of the year, regardless of where you live. Students have access to learning materials 24/7. Thanks to asynchronous learning and formative assessment methods, our students work at their own pace (within certain timeframes for completing the courses). They can progress faster and free up more time that can be spent on their passions and interests such as sports, arts, music, etc.
Students communicate with teachers and access learning materials such as e-textbooks, quizzes, videos, audio materials, computer games, assignments etc., via a school platform, which is accessible from a computer, tablet or smartphone provided that there is high-speed internet access. Teacher-student communication happens one-on-one via online consultations by email, chat, telephone or vide-calls to address any areas of concern. Students interact with peers through groups of interest, virtual chat rooms of school clubs, and student associations.
The American Online High School Program is accredited by Cognia (previously AdvancEd). Students must complete all courses that meet academic standards expected from students in the US at each grade level, known as the Common Core Standards. Our students can also enrol in NCAA – approved courses, and apply for sports scholarships at American colleges and universities.
The role of the JDJ Educational Mentor is to:
- Motivate students to fulfil their potential.
- Monitor student learning progress and report back to parents/legal guardians.
- Contact teachers on behalf on the parent to resolve potential issues.
- Help design personalized learning schedules so that students can take full advantage of online learning, for instance, through elective course choices reflective of future educational or professional aspirations,
- Assist students in selecting the right university and support them in the application process.
