Facilitating education for adult students is an important focus of "High School Your Way!", as many of the potential students using our site are looking to finish High School and earn their diploma. Many have found the right school to help them achieve the education that life may have interrupted. This is why our educational philosophy leans towards freedom of information and thus freedom of choice. The andragogic methodology of education fits well with the online or distance learning program offered by schools included in the "High School Your Way!" Directory.  When choosing the right school or program, pay careful attention to the teaching method used. For example: Andragogy is the antonym of pedagogy. In pedagogy, the concern is with transmitting the content, while in andragogy, the concern is with facilitating the acquisition of the content. Andragogy is a theory developed by Knowles (1913-97) which differentiates the needs of adult learners from those of juveniles and uses the term andragogy to describe the specific methods which should be employed in the education of adults. The Online High School programs offered at many schools make the educational process leading to a high school diploma attainable by students without the need to attend class physically. While this is an excellent opportunity for some, others may not find success in such a system and may wish to pursue a more traditional classroom based program.

Many of our sponsor schools offer both traditional classroom based programs as well as more progressive online programs that allow more independence but also require more discipline on the part of the student and parents to ensure the curriculum is followed. In addition to online or classroom based programs many schools also offer parents tools and resources to carry out Home based schooling or Home School. There are over 100,000+ school listings on the site with statistics for each school and student/parent comments grading both schools and the teachers at those schools. We welcome the opinions posted as they help others make better and more informed decisions about where to go to school. Programs should meet the requirements outlined by the state that the school is based in. As an example, in Florida, High School programs must meet the recommended guidelines found in both the Sun Shine State Standards (SSS) and Competency Based Curriculum (CBC) for High School level education. Upon compliance, the School is eligible to receive funds from the Office of Student Financial Assistance, Florida Resident Scholarship and Grant Programs. Be sure that the school or program you choose meets the recommended content of both the Sun Shine State Standards (SSS) and Competency Based Curriculum (CBC). Typically online and classroom based programs require the same credit requirement. Taking Florida as an example once again, the credit requirement for High School graduation is 24 credits for grades 9-12. One credit is earned for 2 semesters of study or in most cases one year. Any high school courses or credits completed previously by the student may be transferred to the recipient High School program.
