AHS Online is an innovative online program that combines flexible, independent learning; social interaction with peers and teachers; and personalized education with frequent, individual coaching sessions.
This year we are offering two class schedules, with each group capped at 24 participants. Students can sign up for Monday/Wednesday/Friday live classes or the Tuesday/Thursday live classes. Schedule times are in the Mountain Time Zone (MST and DST). The individual study times are shown as examples only. Students may adapt their individual schedules for math and assignments as they prefer.
Individual Work: Students independently learn concepts for each class by watching explanatory videos of AHS teachers, by studying the resources linked in the lesson, and by completing assignments two days before each live class. Students should plan to dedicate about 20 hours of independent work per week.
Math Class: Each student is assigned a math course on their individual level, and so there is not a live class with other students. Students should plan to complete one math lesson a day and one test per week, though some may progress more rapidly. Students may schedule time any day with the math coach (as available) to ask questions and get personal instruction and feedback.
Live Classes: Students meet for live online classes with those in their group and with the class learning coach to ask and discuss questions, do group work, and receive feedback. These live classes start with a student-led devotional, progress through 45-minute class periods, and include a “power-up” exercise breaks—for a total of 6 hours per week.
Individual Coaching: Students can schedule one-on-one, 15-minute coaching sessions as needed and as available. During these sessions, students, parents, and learning coaches discuss ways to personalize the student’s learning experience—such as adapting assignments to better meet the student’s needs. Also, students can ask questions, give and receive feedback, and report progress on assignments. Students will schedule individual sessions with each class learning coach at least once every other week.
