Earn College Credits while in High School

High school students are able to take two online courses each year. RLS has partnered with Orange Lutheran High School in California to offer high school courses to our students. These courses fill elective requirements needed for graduation. For our advanced learners, RLS has partnered with accredited Christian universities, and offer a wide selection of online courses eligible for both college and high school credit. Students can choose the courses they want to take based on their interest and ability level and receive both high school and college credit. Qualified students can earn 15 or more college credits while they are in high school!

A promising future: Concordia University Wisconsin has launched the Concordia Promise, an initiative to support a variety of opportunities for advanced learning and higher education. As part of the Concordia Promise, students enrolled in Christian high schools and homeschool environments can earn up to one year of college credit completely free by taking dual credit courses.
