How Home Study Works
How Home Study Works Distance education is virtually a miracle of modern education. It offers the student a quicker method of study, a more convenient method, and a method that provides accurate and proven techniques. Distance education actually brings the school to the student's home, offering a convenience never before possible. Students may continue on with conventional schooling, work, and other obligations while they further their education in preparation for their future.
Citizens' program is individualized instruction utilizing a distance education format for communication between the school and the student. Upon receipt of the enrollment agreement and tuition, the first course material is sent including special instructions on how to begin and other necessary information.
Each student studies at his or her own pace. Within each course, self-check exercises allow the student to check what they have learned. The student may fax, e-mail or write to their teacher when extra help is needed with a subject, or the student may call the school at any time with their questions or concerns.
The study guides sent with each course also include the course examinations which are completed on the open book principle. When the student feels ready, he or she takes an examination for a unit of lessons completed and mails it to CHS for grading by a qualified teacher.
At the school, the teacher personally corrects the exam, adding helpful comments and suggestions if needed. After recording the student's passing grade, the school then mails the exam back to the student. When a student finishes a subject, he or she will receive a Certificate of Completion and a grade report.
Finally, after completing the subjects needed, the proud moment arrives – the student is awarded a high school diploma!
