How It Works

How Online High School Works

Who can attend?

The Cyber Academy of South Carolina (CASC) high school program serves students in grades 9–12 who reside in the state of South Carolina.

Because CASC is part of the public school system, it’s tuition-free. Enrolled families receive the K12 curriculum and qualified students receive a loaner laptop and an internet stipend.

Teachers provide individual and small group assistance via online synchronous sessions called “Class Connects.” Students are expected to attend all required Class Connects and meet with their teacher to receive course assistance, tutoring, and instruction.

Expectations for Completing Schoolwork

At CASC, student learning and academic growth are paramount. While we offer a level of flexibility, we recognize the importance of classroom pacing and the need for students to complete their work based on set due dates.

CASC high school uses a semester-based approach where students are required to earn a passing grade on their assignments and online lessons. Due dates are assigned to lessons to encourage consistent, steady progress for academic success.

Attending teacher-led, direct-instruction, online synchronous Class Connect sessions, along with completing coursework, will help students be successful.
