The success recipe of the American Online School

ENROLL NOW: K-12 education independent from location or schedule

The American Online School is a 100% digital school system for all grades from Kindergarten to High school, including college preparation courses.

Students log into their computer profiles and find subjects of their grade level on the digital learning management platform. Everyone goes at their own pace and decides freely in which order the courses will be completed. After selecting a course, different tasks become available which will have to be completed to advance within the course. A tutor will review the student’s work and give feedback asynchronously. In addition, remote tutors are available for questions or if problems arise. However, the goal is to foster independence, computer-literacy, and self-learning, which means the students are responsible for the quality of their learning experience and motivation.

Besides an innovative education system, the American Online school values equal access for all students and individually tailored learning.

Grades & Classes

First grade open for enrollment!

In planning: Pre-school to 12th grade. Courses are created daily!

The American Online School is an alternative to traditional homeschooling (and/or public and private schools) and was modeled after the successful Swiss Online School that has been educating children and adults for the past several years in Switzerland. New content is continuously created if a grade is not available yet. Enroll in the Newsletter to learn immediately when grades are ready for enrollment. 

Students learn at their own pace and at their selected time at home or on the-go (internet access is required to access course content). Such individualism and self-organization are core competencies of tomorrow.

The American Online School allows student of all states to participate as our curriculums and syllabi follow state policies and rules. Students have a high success rate at national standardized tests and at the end of their High School classes for the college admission test (e.g., SAT, ACT, etc.).

Prerequisites & Start

A start with us is possible at anytime throughout the year 

Wherever you go, your classroom is always at your fingertips. Independent from the student’s age or location, a student can fulfill their primary and secondary school requirements. There are no prerequisites to attend the American Online School, but the school will fulfill all state-mandated requirements of homeschooling.

Affordable, flexible, and self-paced. Knowledge-gaps are avoided as children will spend more time on topics that are more difficult for them but will be able to move along quicker in subjects that they find easier.

Tuition & Fees

Affordable education ala carte and on-demand

Whatever your needs, we have a solution. Whether a student needs to get extra credits for university admission, requires more time for elementary grades, or likes to advance quicker than possible at a public secondary school, the American Online school provides a high-quality and flexible education.

A grade* costs US$4000. Scholarships of up to $800 per grade are available for eligible students. Individual courses cost US$500. A one-time enrollment fee is US$200.

Please contact us for more information.

*With the American Online School, a single grade can start anytime and will require an equivalent of approximately 180 school days (or as mandated by the state of residence). However, as long as annual attendance records are fulfilled (according to state law), the school year can take as long as the students requires it.
