A Subject Per Day
Are you having a difficult time figuring out a solution for your son or daughter who is not thriving in the traditional school environment?  While there are many wonderful schools throughout the United States, there are instances where a student needs an alternative.    

Consider these questions while you are exploring options:
1.       Does your son or daughter
a.       have a need to study at different hours than the traditional setting offers? 
b.      need a challenging environment that also offers flexible scheduling?
c.       have a desire to get a part-time job?
d.      wish to complete high school earlier than a traditional environment may allow?
e.      have an interest in focusing more on academics?
f.       have a need for a fresh start?

How Does The ANHS Program Work?
We have found that many students benefit from simplicity in structure here at Allied National High School.  While many are accustomed to working on several subjects each day, our program provides an opportunity to take a different approach.  Our suggested “Subject A Day” method works very well within our Regular Grading system, and has been of help to many families!  Here’s a sample schedule:

 Monday
Tuesday
Wednesday
Thursday
Friday
US History
Lesson 1




English


Lesson 1


Algebra 2

Lesson 1



Spanish 2



Tarea 1

Health




Lesson 1

How does this schedule work? 
In a nutshell, a student can work about 5 hours a day, 5 days a week and stay on track to complete each semester course within approximately 4.5 months (less in some cases).  Of course each student is unique, and while one student will complete an English assignment in 4 hours, another may take 5.  Fortunately, our program offers this flexibility, and a student can break up their studies throughout the day.  For example, a student can complete the reading portion of their assignment from 10 am to 12 pm, and take a break, return to their assignment and the online portion from 2-4 pm, and perhaps finish the assignment from 6-7 pm, submit the assignment for grading, and take the quiz.  Since there are no set classroom hours, the parent and student can work with our high school counselor to create their own structure.  A steady and consistent effort to complete 1 assignment in 1 subject each day simplifies the whole process of completing required credits for graduation. 

Why does this work well? 
Parents, you can monitor progress easily!  You can simply ask your son or daughter if they have completed their homework assignment for that day’s designated subject area.  We also provide you with Observer Access so you can monitor progress, view teacher feedback and check grades.
Students, if you work steadily each day, 4-5 hours a day, you can stay right on track to complete your required credits.  Also, when you have completed your subject assignment on that particular day, you can rest easy and know that you have completed your work and feel a sense of accomplishment. 
This isn’t to say it will be easy!  Our program is academically designed to help students learn, grow and ultimately prepare them for their future, whether it is a vocation, career or attending college/university.  However, this approach can keep things simple – so you can focus on one task, break it up into parts, and achieve your end result.   
One Subject Each Day…

Leo A. is currently a senior here at Allied National High School, and started with us as a freshman.  Leo shares his thoughts about online learning, and how ANHS helped him reach his goals by offering academic rigor and scheduling flexibility.

Here is what Leo shared with us this testimonial below, along with his photo:


"ANHS allowed me to pursue my dream of farming while studying.  I convinced my parents to home school me for high school.  I had been home schooled since kindergarten and I really wanted to continue.  My older siblings had attended the local high school but I wanted more time to work with my sheep and in my garden.  ANHS fit our needs.

My main interest in life is farming.  I enjoy all aspects of it including raising vegetables and livestock.  Distance learning works perfect for me.  I am able to do a lesson, and then run outside to move my sheep.  I can process tomatoes while listening to a story.  I can work when it is nice outside and do my lessons after dark.

My future plan is to become a certified electrician.  This will be a nice additional education to have while farming.  My main go9al is to raise livestock by intensive pasture grazing them."

Leo further states, "The best part of my high school experience was being on my family's farm.  Allied National High School allowed me to be home, where I could work and learn at the same time."

Great Fun
