Online Home Schooling & Distance Education

Online home schooling and distance education have been around for quite a while. The only reason they seem to be at the forefront of discussions in the field of education is because of the current economic recession and a sad fact, which is safety concerns.


Online learning environments provide us with one aspect traditional schools have been battling with recently – safety concerns. The recent happenings are a sad reminder of the shortcomings of the security measures in place in traditional schooling environments. Add to that the hardships that are being faced by the average American on account of the economic slowdown and you’ve got the perfect setting that encourages the search for new alternatives. An alternative that provides you with low-cost education in the comfort of your own home certainly proves to be the way forward for our children today.


Whether you’re one of those parents deciding on whether to enroll your child with an online high school, an online middle school or even an online elementary school, distance education solutions are your best bet. They offer you convenience, flexibility, time-saving options that save you the hassle of transportation as well, and are extremely affordable alternatives to conventional education methodologies. In terms of education too, online K-12 courses score over traditional environments. Students have more flexibility and control over their curriculum and this in turn, facilitates an increased absorption rate, as per recent studies conducted. These are only a few of the many reasons why parents and students now prefer to opt for online courses either as standalone solutions or in combination with traditional schooling.


The one thing to keep in mind is to make sure the online high school, online middle school or online elementary school you enroll with has all the necessary accreditation's. When it comes to distance education, these credentials can make a world of difference when seeking admission to a college or university. Forest Trail Academy is regionally accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges & Schools Council on Accreditation and School Improvement (SACS CASI), and is also nationally accredited and a member of National Association of Private & Home Schools (N.A.P.H.S.). Furthermore, our school is also registered with the Florida Department of Education.
