Online high schools in Maine

Maine is integrating technology into education: In 2011, the Maine Learning Technology Foundation provided free dial-up home Internet access for qualified middle and high school students. Another initiative placed classroom laptops in the hands of students and faculty in 226 middle schools and 66 high schools; as of January 2010, this included nearly 24,000 students in the 9th through 12th grades. The state also participates in Project IDEAL, national consortium developing distance education for adult students.

Maine boasts more high school graduates than the U.S. norm. Nationwide, the percentage of people aged 25 or older who had graduated was about 85 percent, according to the U.S. Census, while the average in Maine was above 89 percent. The Maine Department of Education reports some good news in terms of high school graduation; the 82.8 percent rate in 2009-2010 showed that many schools had improved their rates from the year before. The Pine Tree State is home to numerous public high schools, as well as a large number of private high schools, preparatory schools and academies based on a religious orientation.

Browsing online high schools in Maine

As of 2011, Maine did not support public or charter options for online high schools as full-time alternatives to campus-based diploma programs. The state posts a list of accredited, approved online schools that meet its requirements. The state's goals include providing a broader range of educational options and helping students improve academic achievement.

Privately owned Maine online high schools, including those on the state's list of approved providers, charge tuition. These online schools feature a wide range of subjects, including credit recovery and core programs, Advanced Placement and accelerated studies, fine arts, and physical education.
