South Dakota Online High School

Even South Dakota’s urban school districts can struggle to meet the needs of every student. That problem looms even bigger in smaller districts with fewer resources. USCI’s Online High School has an alternative: a comprehensive, fully accredited high school that brings high-quality education to South Dakota students wherever they live. Our curriculum adheres to Colorado’s education standards, which follow the Common Core just like every high school in South Dakota. That means that your USCI diploma will be recognized across the country, while letting you study at the pace that’s best for you.

Online High School Diploma in South Dakota

South Dakota believes in education. More than *93% of all South Dakota residents aged 18 and over have earned their high school diplomas, one of the highest rates in the US. A high school diploma isn’t just a mark of achievement here: it’s an important step toward competing for good jobs today and in the years to come.

Traditional high schools offer one-size-fits-all education—and while that works for many students, too many find the old model of education to be limiting. Others can find themselves commuting an hour or more to schools that do their very best with shrinking budgets. That’s why USCI is so proud to offer an alternative. If your student needs a self-paced education from the convenience of home, or if you’re looking to get back to high school after things didn’t go as planned, we’re ready to get you back on the path to success. By delivering all instruction online, we are able to offer customized instruction that gives each student extra support where they need it. USCI students typically take one or two courses at a time, letting them focus on mastering important concepts and building confidence as they build knowledge. We believe in delivering your education on your terms.

Online High School for South Dakota Adults

Since a high school degree is so important in South Dakota, many returning students are tempted to take the GED test and move on. But a GED means a bit less to employers than a full high school diploma like the one you’ll earn at USCI. The numbers don’t lie: adults in South Dakota who have earned accredited high school diplomas earn *$5,885 more per year than those who do not. That’s why we offer a middle path: the convenience of studying at your own pace with the prestige and economic value of a true high school diploma.

Online High School for Traditional South Dakota Students

Traditional high schools just can’t meet the educational needs of every student. If a tailored, focused, and self-paced approach to high school works better for you, USCI’s Online High School could be the perfect alternative. We designed our curriculum to be flexible enough to meet the needs of students who work best when they focus on one challenge at a time, while delivering a rigorous education and a fully accredited diploma that will serve you well wherever you go.

South Dakota Online Homeschool Curriculum

Homeschooling can become more difficult as students rise through the educational ranks. Families looking for a flexible at-home education for their students while still meeting contemporary standards finally have an answer in USCI’s Online High School. Your student will enjoy all the benefits of the homeschool experience while earning a fully accredited, nationally recognized diploma that serves as their ticket to bigger and better things.
