Advantages of Having an Online Secondary Education
Traditional learning assumes that students all learn at the same pace. With our senior high school online study program, students can set a pace they feel comfortable with. They can breeze through lessons they find easy, or take more time learning ones that are more challenging for them. This ensures that students can absorb the lessons to the best of their abilities so that they can reach their full
Open and Encouraging Classroom Environment
While some students may find it easy and natural to engage with their fellow classmates, others may find it daunting or intimidating. Forcing students to come out of their shell and interact more have been found to have more detrimental effects, causing them to become more aloof. Students who are naturally shier or have difficulties speaking in public may benefit in an online senior high school program. Students enrolled in our online senior high school program can freely join discussion via our forums and discussion boards without fear of being judged for their opinions. This type of set-up is ideal for students who do not feel comfortable with public speaking and removes the pressure about being vocal while still giving them the avenue to voice out their opinions and ideas. This gives introverted students the perfect opportunity to shine socially, as they can talk and interact more actively with their classmates in a more comfortable environment.
Being the premier online senior high school in the Philippines, we understand the reality that some students have more on their plates than just attaining their senior high school diploma. Others have responsibilities like helping out in the family business, running their own micro-enterprise, or even sustaining themselves with a part-time job. Online senior high school allows students to create a schedule that works for them. Students who are running a business or are working part-time no longer have to give up their education just to help their families earn. Although students are still required to submit their assignments and show up for scheduled quizzes and exams, they do not have a fixed 7 am – 3 pm class schedule like most traditional schools do. This gives students the freedom to explore their hobbies, interests, passions, and business ventures while pursuing their education as well.

Everything — class videos, assignments, and quizzes — is accomplished in our Learning Management System (LMS), a portal where you can access lessons and answer activities. You can access your LMS account and attend classes during non-traditional hours. Plus, you can learn at your own pace.

Yes, you may. Our online SHS program doesn’t follow a traditional academic calendar. Our school year is divided into two terms, running for 20 weeks or equivalent to 140 days. You can start your online schooling anytime within this period. If you complete all requirements earlier than 140 days, and it’s been 70 days since your subjects have been activated, you may enroll for the next term. But your report card will only be released after the 140-day residency.
Since all schoolwork is accomplished and turned in online, it’s unlikely you’ll get to meet your classmates in person. You can, however, still easily discuss your ideas with fellow learners on the discussion boards. Moreover, if you secure the approval of an AMAOEd Coordinator, you may post posters, broadsheets, survey sheets, and other learning tools on the board. LMS enables a rich interaction between its students.
All assignments are submitted on the LMS portal. Each student has an account and dashboard, where they can access class modules, video lessons, and homework.
At the bottom of the lessons or chapter quizzes, there are links that lead you to submission portals. Meanwhile, quizzes and exams are time-bound. The duration for quizzes depends on the lesson, while final exams run for a maximum of two hours.
Adding a subject is not applicable for SHS. Students must take a full load, depending on the subjects that they should take per semester/term.
Dropping a subject is also not applicable for SHS. DepEd policies state that academic bodies should not fail or drop a student. Instead, we are to help them pass by giving remedial lessons.
The student will be issued a drop mark in his report card when he requests to transfer to another school.
