Perks of Going to High School Online: Why Parents & Students Love Online Learning

Today’s families choose from a variety of different schooling opportunities — such as traditional K-12 schooling, homeschooling or high school online. While educational choice is a great thing, some parents can get confused about which one is right for their child.

You are most likely familiar with traditional brick & mortar high schools. Chances are that you even attended one yourself. Homeschool is another option, but this option puts a lot of pressure on parents to teach the coursework. What parent wants to teach Chemistry or Geometry or Physics? Not many that I know of.

High school online is the perfect balance between the two previous options. It gives parents & students more academic control, without relying on a parent to take on the role of a teacher.

That’s why American High School is a perfect choice for parents & students. Homeschoolers enroll in the online school because it allows them flexibility in their learning. With online learning, motivated homeschooled teens don’t need to be held back by classes that must take four years to complete. Instead, the homeschooled students can choose an online high school that allows students to finish courses as fast as they are able to complete the coursework. Many online high school graduates have earned their diplomas & moved on to ​college one or two years ahead of their peers.

Here’s some more information about the benefits of attending American High school online:

  1. Online classes are available 24/7 every day, which means students can participate in their education when they want & take breaks as needed.
  2. Students can choose their own learning pace. They can advance more quickly in subjects they like & they excel in and take extra time on subjects when needed that they don’t like as much (Math as an example).
  3. Students who attend American High School online can access their lessons, ebooks, videos, journals, discussion boards, PowerPoint presentations & any other coursework material ANY time they want.
  4. Teachers at online schools tend to be more accessible to students — this is primarily attributed to the ease of communication through the traditional email & telephone, as well as video to email & video to phone. These various communication tools allow online students to email, chat, text or even call their teachers.
  5. Online schools use multiple forms of teaching materials, including videos, slideshows & lecture notes. These methods are more accommodating to different learning styles.
  6. One-on-one interactions with instructors create a safe & comfortable learning environment.
  7. The U.S. Department of Education reported that research shows students who attend online schools excel at a rapid rate.
  8. Fashion woes are a thing of the past. No one cares what you’re wearing when you attend high school online. You can go to school in your pajamas & get up at 10 a.m. to start their online course.
  9. Where you live plays a big part in what traditional school your child can attend, & the options aren’t always desirable. Online high school is global. No matter where you live, your child has a great schooling option.

Another major perk of attending American High School online is the way it can prepare students for college. Children who go to high school online receive an excellent education that is based on the core curriculum needed for entrance to college, as well as the elective courses that colleges often look for to ensure a student is well rounded. Online students are well prepared for college because they’ve learned to work independently, which is a necessary skill for college success.

Online students have plenty of opportunity to interact with their offline peers by enrolling in extracurricular activities, such as karate lessons, dance lessons, youth group at church, charity work & teen clubs. American High School online students can attend full-time or part-time, meaning these students are also enrolled at a traditional high school & are still able to participate in those school-sponsored extracurricular activities. Regardless of the situation, online students are able to fit extra activities into their schedule easily because online high schools are incredibly flexible.

April is National Garlic Month!

Garlic is used to enhance just about every dish with a savory, delicious taste & this month, it’s time to show it some love!

Celebrate this classic cooking ingredient all month long with Carrington Farms Garlic Flavored Liquid Coconut Cooking Oil & Gaea Extra Virgin Olive Oil with a Dash of Garlic. Both are perfect for adding that garlicky flavor to dishes, but with no garlic cloves necessary. Whether you prefer coconut oil or Greek olive oil (or both!), these oils take cooking with garlic to a whole new level.

Carrington Farms Garlic Flavored Liquid Coconut Cooking Oil

As a great alternative to traditional oils such as vegetable, olive, canola, & corn oil, Liquid Coconut Cooking Oil retains all the benefits of traditional coconut oil but does not have the flavor or odor of coconuts. It’s naturally rich in Medium Chain Triglycerides (MCT) which is efficiently utilized by the body for energy production & helps aid in calorie burning & contains 4 x more MCT’s than traditional virgin coconut oil. It event has a higher heat point than traditional olive oils. Carrington’s is all-natural, gluten-free, hexane-free, NON-GMO, free of hydrogenated & trans fats & comes in a BPA free bottle. SRP: $11.99 / 16oz bottle,  www.CarringtonFarms.com.

Gaea Extra Virgin Olive Oil with a Dash of Garlic 

Gaea Extra Virgin Olive Oil With a dash of Garlic is made from handpicked olives freshly flavored with garlic to give it an even more healthy kick. Blended with just the right amount of garlic to give a quick & easy kick of flavor, this naturally flavored Extra Virgin Olive Oil is a delicious accompaniment to salads, seafood & grilled fish or meat. Gaea Aromatic Extra Virgin Olive Oils are made of 100% natural ingredients, without any preservatives or additives. Available for $8.99 on www.gaeaus.com.

Try THIS deliciously colorful recipe for spring & summer gatherings!

Check out Tales of the Mischievious Harry Leviticus Bunking by LINCOLN WILLIAMS

From the author: Hi there! My name is Lincoln Williams, & I want to share my story with you. I accidently started this project about a year ago, out of sheer frustration. My oldest son Zion, is a very smart boy by all accounts, but he hates reading. I tried everything I could to encourage him to read more & I just could not. This was all the more frustrating for me because I am an avid reader! One day I was at home, & it suddenly dawned on me – Maybe, I could encourage my son to care more about reading if he could relate to the material that he was reading & that is how this project was born: “Tales of the Mischievous Harry Leviticus Bunking.” When I embarked on this project with Zion, I could see the immediate impact. Not only was he showing more interest in reading, but he was also motivated in helping to develop the characters for each short story in the series. Well, at the outset, this project was just supposed to be three short stories, but now the project has evolved two-fold. First, I have succeeded in motivating my son into being a better reader &; Second, I have re-discovered my passion for writing children’s stories! Personally, I have taken this project as far as I can from a financial standpoint & with the feedback that I am getting, I have decided that it is time to move beyond keeping this as a hobby for my children, close friends & my immediate family circle. The “Tales of the Mischievous Harry Leviticus Bunking” is a series of fast-paced short stories about a boy named Harry. Harry is always in search of fun! However, in his quest for the ultimate fun experience, Harry may go a little overboard. To be fair, Harry is a flawed character, but his intentions are not malicious. Folks, some of his choices leave a lot to be desired, & Harry ends up paying the price for those poor choices. As a parent of two very, very, active boys, I use Harry as examples of “teachable” moments. SO, Why Kickstarter? One word – INDEPENDENCE! I believe that by obtaining funding by crowdfunding on Kickstarter, I will be able to keep the Harry Bunking Series completely independent & 100% accountable to the people who matter most––our readers. I will be able to work independently without compromise to my creative process. A successful campaign on Kickstarter would give me the creative freedom with my project!

5 Cooking Ingredients to Revamp Spring Cooking

MOMS, Check out these 5 simple ingredients that will level UP your kitchen game! 

  1. Ghee: Touted as the new it butter, Ghee is a clarified butter that is dairy-free & known to help balance cholesterol levels. Try Carrington Farms Organic Ghee in place of butter in your favorite recipes to give you that buttery flavor – without the guilt!
  2. Greek Olive Oil: Known for being a “healthy fat,” Extra Virgin Greek Olive Oil is one of the most versatile foods in the world. It has a TON of health benefits that fight many age-related diseases, & has the ability to lower cholesterol, reduce the risk of cancer, lower blood pressure, & more. Choose a quality olive oil, such as Kalamata D.O.P. Greek Extra Virgin Olive Oil, to cook all of your meals & to get the most out of your olive oil. Your dinner guests (& heart) will thank you!
  3. Sea Salt: Salt may get a bad rap, but that’s no reason to cut all salt out of your diet – Sea Salt is one of the good ones! It contains a higher mineral content than regular salt & will give your food more flavor. Try adding sea salt to your basic chocolate chip cookie recipe, & you will be glad you did!
  4. Beans & Legumes: With so many different varieties to choose from, beans are a versatile ingredient with a ton of health benefits. They are loaded with protein & fiber to keep you full all day long & are good for digestion. Switch up your bean game with bean pasta from Explore Cuisine– made with organic beans only!
  5. Lemon: It’s no secret the lemon can be used for just about everything. This vibrant fruit is loaded with vitamin C, magnesium, fiber, & contains more potassium than apples or grapes. Add lemon to your favorite chicken dish, your Greek yogurt for a savory snack, or your water to reap all the health benefits.

    Bon appétit! XO, Motherstucker 😉
