ASHBURN, Va., Aug. 25, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- George Washington University Online High School (GWUOHS), an independent online private school for students in grades 6-12, will begin the 2014-2015 academic year on September 3, 2014. The program marks its 4th year of operation and continues to expand rapidly.
GWUOHS is a partnership between the nationally renowned George Washington University and K12 Inc., the leading provider of online education for grades K-12 in the U.S. and around the world. The school offers a rigorous yet flexible college preparatory curriculum combined with extensive teacher support and personalized step-by-step college counseling to ensure that students reach their true potential.
Students who enroll at GWUOHS follow an academic program that includes engaging web-based lessons along with instructional materials – books, videos, CDs and other hands-on tools and resources – which are shipped directly to each student's home. GWUOHS aims to prepare students beyond what they can achieve in traditional schools by providing a customized education attuned to their own needs and goals through regular support of nurturing teachers and college counselors.
GWUOHS educators provide the individualized learning tools students need including instruction, guidance, and support, and they regularly interact with students and parents via e-mail, web-based classrooms, online discussions, and phone. There are also opportunities throughout the school year where students have the chance to blend academics and socialization.
"The individual student is the most important person in any school — traditional, charter, virtual, or private," said Staci Kimmons, Head of School at George Washington University Online High School. "Students learn at different speeds and excel in different environments, so education can no longer be viewed as a "one-size-fits-all" solution. The individualized K¹² program gives students worldwide the benefit of an educational experience tailored to his or her learning style."
The GWUOHS curriculum is wrapped in rich, engaging content. GWUOHS provides a complete portfolio of college preparatory courses, including challenging Honors and Advanced Placement® (AP®) courses. It also offers a broad foundation of courses in English, Math, Science, History and World Languages. Students have the opportunity to pursue a special interest or passion via over 50 elective courses as well.
Enrollment is still open for the GWUOHS 2014-2015 academic school year, and all interested families are encouraged to visit http://www.gwuohs.com/ for more information, as well as details on upcoming community events and online information sessions.
