Q: How does Greenways Academy adjust their courses for each student’s needs?

Q: Can my student take courses at Greenways Academy and another high school at the same time?
A: Yes. As an accredited high school, Greenways credits can be transferred to other high schools. We offer full-time, part-time, or course-by-course enrollment. Credits to be used toward graduation at another high school should be reviewed and approved by that school prior to enrollment.
Q: Is a Greenways Academy’s diploma the same as other high schools?
A: Yes, a Greenways Academy diploma is accredited and recognized by colleges and Universities worldwide.
Q: Is a Greenways Academy’s diploma different than a G.E.D?
A: Yes. A GED is a series of exams administered to certify high school level academic skills. Since Greenways Academy is a school, each of our graduation requirements must be met before a diploma is issued.

Q: What if I want to start at Greenways soon?

We can usually get a student transitioned to Greenways Academy in 1-2 weeks.
Q: How many hours of tutoring does a full-time student usually need?
A: Generally, our full time students are working with tutors between 8-15 hours/week. Each student is different, and so the amount of tutoring needed to complete schoolwork varies. Adjustments can be made at any time.
