Hanover School District has been a high performing school system rating among the best in the Pikes Peak Region on ACT, CMAS/PARCC and Graduation Rate. The quality education we facilitate is both in a brick and mortar, traditional school AND online. As a student in the online academy you are also a part of the Hanover School District family. We are so glad you have chosen the Hanover 6-12 Online Academy for your child’s education.

Online learning allows you to create your learning environment differently than you can at school. While at home, you can create your own workspace in which you feel most comfortable.
Maybe you fill your learning space with inspirational quotes, photos that make you happy, comfortable pillows on which to sit, etc.
Of course, not every student has an ideal home environment in which to learn, so try to work with your parents or guardians to find a solution and make sure you have somewhere to go with strong internet connection and space to focus prior to online classes in the fall.
Though you might enjoy the social aspect of school, learning online will eliminate the distractions that come from working alongside your friends.
Even with social distancing guidelines in place, you can find time to socialize outside or over video chat with friends outside of your online classes. That means you can focus solely on class when you’re in class and hopefully get more work done in a shorter period of time.
Online high school is also a great opportunity for students who do not enjoy the social aspect of high school for whatever reason. Now, you do not have to sit in-person all day with students if you feel uncomfortable in social settings and can choose which social interactions to indulge while social distancing.
Finally, taking high school courses online will help you build the time management and independence skills you will need in college and beyond.
Since you likely won’t have the same level of accountability from teachers and classmates when you’re working independently at home, you will need to set reminders for your own deadlines and learn how to work in a focused, intentional manner while not in a classroom setting.
Assuming your college classes will require the same level of accountability, while learning online, you will acquire the skills you need to succeed as a more independent learner. This will help prepare you for life after high school!
