Engage with challenging coursework. Participate in dialogue with college undergraduates and other high school students around the globe. Explore exciting subjects through online lectures, discussion boards, individual assignments, and a flexible weekly schedule.

    High School Honors Online courses are an excellent option for independent learners with strong time management skills. However, keep in mind that summer courses are intensive when planning other commitments.
