BYU announces new online high school diploma

Brigham Young University has announced the availability of a high school diploma through Continuing Education’s Independent Study (BYU-IS) program. Students can continue to take BYU-IS courses to supplement their local graduation requirements, or they can now choose to earn a diploma directly through the new BYU Online High School.

“Students are looking for flexibility, and many parents are seeking alternative educational options that meet individual student needs,” says Lee J. Glines, Dean of Continuing Education at BYU. “BYU-IS offers more than 250 high school courses in a variety of subjects. Adding this structured diploma track enables BYU Online High School to offer a complete program similar to other virtual high schools.”

Information about application, enrollment, and courses is available at highschool.byu.edu. BYU Independent Study is fully accredited by Cognia (formerly AdvanceED) and the Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Elementary and Secondary Schools.
