High School Academics
Online High School
Cyber Academy of South Carolina (CASC) knows success is not a single destination, and the journey can take many turns. But no matter the path, we believe in unlocking every learner's potential by meeting them where they are and helping them reach their goals.
Explore Our Courses
As students move through middle school and into high school, their work becomes increasingly independent. High school courses are designed for students targeting a four-year university, a local community college, or an immediate career.
In our high school courses, students:
- Learn grade-level content
- Complete coursework that might require writing or research projects
- Tackle problems that require analytical thinking
We also offer more than 15 credit recovery courses for students who need to catch up.

Get Ahead with Dual Enrollment Courses
It's never too early to start thinking about life after high school. And at CASC, qualified high schoolers can get a head start on their future goals by taking advantage of dual enrollment opportunities. That means your student can be enrolled in courses that will count toward their diploma, plus earn them college credits they'll be able to apply toward a degree. It's double credit for the same work, which saves students time, giving them the chance to earn a degree faster.
