HACKETTSTOWN — Online learning will be the topic of conversation at a meeting when New Jersey students, teachers and administrators meet at the high school here this Thursday.
Representatives from 10 schools interested in learning more about the high school’s Virtual High School Program are expected to attend, said Sarah Domick, library media specialist and VHS coordinator.
The program, which includes both national and international students, allows students to choose from more than 400 classes online. At Hackettstown, students can participate in classes otherwise not offered by the district, allowing students to “pursue a subject or interest that otherwise they wouldn’t be able to take a class on,” she said.
Degree Press is pleased to offer the second edition of Complete Guide to Online High Schools: Distance learning options for teens & adults. This new edition has almost three times as many schools listed as the first edition. In addition, there is a greater amount of information about selecting the school that is right for you.

The idea really began to take root a couple of years ago, when a small group of seniors who had exhausted the math curriculum offerings at the high school asked the Somerset Hills School District for permission to take advanced classes via the Internet, Smith said.
“Four of them took linear algebra and calculus III and another two decided to take a different math class,” he said.
