Academics

In a traditional high school, your class schedule and day is planned for you. At ASU Prep Digital, if you are taking a full load of courses, you decide what your day looks like. Need extra tutoring in math…go for it! Feel like working all day just on your biology project…that works too!

For part-time students, you get to decide when and where you can best work on your online course— whether that means your home, a library, a coffee shop—anywhere with reliable Internet.

We encourage a personalized pace, and we will support you if you advance more quickly or need extra time to be successful.

Yes! Your courses are 100% online and you can study in your pajamas if you choose! Just be sure to comb your hair before you turn on your webcam for class! Built into the courses, though, are offline assignments just to mix it up, keep your learning active, and keep you from staring at a computer with no break!

Yes! While we love technology and innovation, we know teachers are the driving force behind your learning experience at ASU Prep Digital. You will interact regularly with a highly qualified, instructor for each course, as well as have ongoing conversations with your Learning Success Coach. We might be a little biased, but we think our teachers are AMAZING!

Absolutely! The full curriculum is available to you on day one. We encourage all students to work at the pace that meets your learning needs. At ASU Prep Digital, we will continually challenge you to be the co- designer of your educational experience and finishing a course early is just one perk of attending school with us.

On the flip side, you might need extra time to complete certain projects or assignments. You will work together with your teacher and Learning Success Coach to customize your learning experience that works for YOU!


Student Life

Absolutely not! While your curriculum is based online, you will complete offline activities such as lab work, PALs (Personal Applications of Learning), and collaboration with others, on and offline, to help deepen your understanding through experiences that engage you outside the virtual classroom.

If you are taking courses part-time with ASU Prep Digital, you are in control of when and where you learn. Do you have a favorite coffee shop? Great! Go there to work on your course after school. You just need Internet and you’re ready to go. The courses allow for pace flexibility, so if you are struggling with a particular lesson, you can slow down, or if you’ve already mastered a concept, you can speed up. You’ll interact with the content in a variety of ways, and we’ve included lots of variety to keep it interesting. Some courses even include virtual and augmented reality, and some of our science courses are almost like an exploration where you, as the learner, are on a discovery quest with your fellow students. You may even forget this is school.

If you are taking a full load of courses from us, your day depends on your learning style. Do you prefer to focus on one subject a day or does mixing it up with six subjects a day sound more appealing to you? You can expect a one-hour, live lesson per course each week. This is a great time for direct instruction and collaboration with peers. While attendance and participation are always encouraged, all live lessons are recorded and available on demand, so you never have to miss a thing.

While you will attend online classes with peers throughout the world, you will also have the chance to interact with your teachers as well as get up and out of your seat for activities to keep you engaged with your own community.

In numerous ways! Amazing teachers, technology tools and rigorous college prep coursework lay the foundation for a unique learning experience. At ASU Prep Digital, we help you gain the knowledge and training that will allow you to connect with peers both locally and across the globe.

You will have the opportunity to complete projects, collaborate in live lessons, engage in discussion board posts and more, with your online peers. You will also engage with international experts and peers around the world through events such as connecting with students in Singapore to work on a project, practicing language with students in Spain, or solving a world problem with a leading global expert.

One beauty of online learning is the flexibility it offers. Are you a morning person? You can log in before your regular classes and knock out an online lesson. More of a night owl? Get comfortable at home and work on your lessons in your favorite spot. While the time and place you learn is entirely flexible, you do have to commit to working regularly on your courses—whether that means every day, every other day, or all day on Saturdays. You’ll get help from the pace charts, included in each course to help you stay on track, and from our Learning Success Coaches who are fantastic at helping you set realistic goals and teaching you how to track your own progress towards those goals.

Finding your groove and navigating multiple classes and the rigor of college prep courses can sometimes be challenging. We get that. So much that we provide you with a Learning Success Coach that will be there to guide you during your entire high school experience.

Our goals for you are simple: graduate high school, seamlessly move on to attain your college degree, then compete in the global job market and contribute to your community.


For parents/guardians

While we believe that there is no “one size fits all” approach to learning, we are committed to using the best innovations in digital learning to meet the needs of all learners and create a customized experience for each and every student.

Let’s talk about your specific child and learning needs.

We love our ASU Prep Digital families and we know they play an essential role in the success of our students. We ask that each of our families take an active role in the education of their child as well as our school community.

We partner with families to attend orientation and Individualized Learning Plan conferences four times each year. ASU Prep Digital also offers both online and face-to-face opportunities to keep our families involved throughout the school year.

Don’t sweat it if you’ve never taken an online course. We have an in-depth student orientation course that you will take before you start your courses that will set you up for success. You’ll also have a Learning Success Coach that will be with you every step of the way during your high school career to help you achieve your goals.

Part-time students will complete a minimum of one course per year as a supplement to their coursework at another school or homeschool studies.

Full-time students will complete all coursework, including the opportunity to complete college courses at Arizona State University, while attending ASU Prep Digital.

We are currently looking to enroll students in grades 9 through 12 who are ready to become global thinkers and leaders and are excited about taking charge of their future by improving their leadership skills and building a portfolio of work that will give you a competitive edge as you move into college.

You can sign up for classes year round! Our courses are rolling enrollment, so you have the opportunity to take classes any time during the year with no specific enrollment window!
