Transitioning into online learning will most certainly include an adjustment period. Your day will look differently on the first day than it will the 30th day. We encourage you to find a routine that works for your student and family. Some students do better working early in the morning, as others work better later in the day.
In order to successfully complete their courses, students should expect to spend an average of one hour per day per course. Of course, this does vary among students and courses – but it is a good starting point to gauge the student work day. We also encourage you to schedule time away from courses. This could include exercise, playing instruments, participating in an outside activity, etc. Balancing school work and extracurricular activity is a great recipe for success!
Because of the flexibility that comes with online school, there’s no limit to what your day could look like! Take a look at some of these IVLA student below, who’ve crafted their own schedules that allow them to lead a unique lifestyle!
