College Preparatory Courses Online

We believe that our program provides rigorous background in the various fields of study, held together by a concern for the underlying structures of thought and expression — the dynamic relation of trivium and quadrivium envisioned by the architects of the original artes liberales. Our students regularly compete and place in national competitions, and go on to enter a range of selective and demanding schools (see list below). They often tell us that the online courses they took with us for high school credit were more demanding than courses they took in college, and they were well prepared for the challenges of their college education.

Recognitions and Awards

Scholars Online has been recognized by the homeschooling community as one of the best online schools available. We were voted first place honors four years running (2017-2020) by readers of Mary Pride's Practical Homeschooling magazine for our classical online school program at both the middle school and high school levels, and in particular for the best online Latin classes for homeschoolers, best history, science, and literature programs, and best classical education program.

National Examinations Performance

Over the years, we have had many students receive placement honors in National Latin, Greek, and language competitions. Here are some recent honors our students have won:

Advanced Placement Test Achievements

We offer a number of college preparatory courses, including several designed to prepare students to take the College Board Advanced Placement examinations offered in May each year. Many of our students score well enough on the examination to receive advanced placement and even college credit for work done at in these courses.

Recognition and placement or credit awards based on AP examination performance vary from college to college, and sometimes even from department to department within a college or university, so be sure to check with the colleges of your choice to determine their AP recognition policies.

College Admissions

We work with those students applying to college, informally supplying some information on the selection of colleges and providing letters of recommendation for students who have completed sufficient work with us to allow us to evaluate their abilities. More formal support includes a Moodle forum for parents and students on choosing colleges, writing application essays, creating portfolios and transcripts, taking National Merit, SAT, AP, and CLEP examinations to gain recognition for academic work, and filling out FAFSA and CEEB financial aid forms.
