The Arizona Department of Education provides the following K-12 online course offering catalog. This catalog represents a listing of some of the K-12 online programs available to students statewide in a centralized location so that schools, parents, and students can view the vast course selection available to them.
Parents and students to consider the following when choosing an online course:
- Work with your school’s guidance counselors and seek their advice. Credits from online courses should transfer, but it would be best to check with your school before taking a course.
- Make arrangements for the technology needed to successfully complete the course. You will need a computer, the necessary software and plug-ins required for the course management system, high speed internet connection and a quiet place to work. Check with your school to see what support it can provide. Some online courses are taken at school, others at home.
- Online learning is designed to be as rigorous as face-to-face courses; however, self-discipline is needed to successfully complete an online course.
- Look at all of the options in the Arizona K-12 Online Course Catalog. For specific information, contact the course provider directly.
- Review the International Association for K -12 Online Learning Standards to help you choose a program.
