Researching online high schools is time-consuming. Even though there’s no shortage of “best online high school” lists on the internet, they’re only a starting place. They rarely give you the details you need for deciding whether a school might be a good fit for your child.
In our online school comparison series, we’ve been taking a closer look at some of the top online schools and what each of them has to offer.
This week, we’re comparing Sora and Dwight Global across five factors to help you choose the right school for your child.
Which School is Right for You?
At the end of the day, both Sora and Dwight Global are fantastic online high schools to consider. Both students at Sora, as well as Dwight Global, give glowing reviews over the quality of their academics and the support they receive from their teachers.
Since the quality is so high for both schools, let’s dive into the focus of that quality to see which school might better support your child’s needs.
Sora’s Career-Centered Approach
Sora is a student-centered, career-focused online high school. Our innovative approach to education replaces one-way lecture learning with highly collaborative project-based learning. Students at Sora love tailoring their projects to solving real-world issues related to their dream careers. Whether it’s writing a novel, developing a video game, or designing a website, students at Sora learn by doing what they love.
Dwight Global’s College-Esque Approach
Dwight Global appears to focus on providing a college-esque experience to high school students. Their curriculum offers a range of AP courses beyond the usual provisions, such as AP languages and AP economics. They also offer International Baccalaureate (IB) courses, which place special emphasis on developing critical thinking, problem-solving skills, and curiosity.
The downside to Dwight Global’s college-esque experience is the college-esque cost. At $39,900 a year, their tuition is even higher than the average private college tuition of $35,087.
