Benefits for Students

Are you a student considering whether a virtual class is right for you? Online courses offer a number of benefits. Let’s break them down:

Your Pace, Your Place
Wouldn’t it be nice to take a class from the comfort of your own room or while on the go? With Open Campus, you can study anywhere you have an Internet connection. Open Campus online courses do not have dedicated meeting times. You can study and work on assignments on your own schedule and at your own pace. OC 1, High School 0.

Cool Courses
Open Campus offers classes that you may not have the opportunity to take at your school. How about Astronomy, Sports & Entertainment Marketing, or Latin? We’ve got you covered.

Own Your Time
Students choose online courses because they offer flexibility with work schedules, sports practice and other commitments. Most courses are scheduled at the start of the day or end of the day. You will have online assignment and coursework deadlines. However, you can decide when it is convenient to work on the course. Like to stay up late to study? No problem!

Rigorous and Rewarding
Online courses are not for the meek. The content is challenging, the assignments require serious effort and the classes will pump you up for college and beyond. Those of you with weak constitutions may want to leave the stadium!  However, if you are up for the challenge, you’ll find the experience incredibly rewarding.

Social Scene
Open Campus classes blend students from three neighboring high schools. Mix it up and have fun meeting and working with different classmates and teachers in a safe online environment.

Build Your Personal Brand
Online learning and training is exploding. Colleges are offering more and more online courses. Business and industry are increasingly turning to virtual training. With the Open Campus experience, you’ll get a jump on your future career.

Expand Your Learning
With a more flexible school schedule, you’re open to a larger variety of internship and work opportunities to help prepare you for life after high school! Such experiences can give you the edge over others when applying for college or employment.

Finish High School Early
If you like to get ahead, Open Campus PA is the program for you! Taking additional classes at your own pace could set you up to graduate earlier. What’s not to like about that?
