More students are choosing to earn an online high school diploma. Provost Academy Colorado is seeing enrollment for the 2010-11 school year increase daily, and the school’s Executive Director Rubin is not surprised.
“Students today want to be active participants in their education,” Rubin said. “They want to learn the same way they live, utilizing what they are familiar with such as blogs, podcasts, and instant messaging to create an interactive environment in which they can thrive.”
According to Rubin, who formerly was the director of Jefferson County’s online education program, students and their parents are coming to realize the benefits of online education. “I have seen the strides students make in their academic success when they are truly engaged in the online experience, and their education matches their individual learning style.”
