The goal of this format is to help prepare you for the growing trend of online college courses as well as the many careers that work in a virtual environment. We will meet during your advisory period (fourth period) one day per week. In addition, you may sign-up to come in during the open lab time on Friday to work on assignments or to seek help. You may also come in before school to use the lab from 7:30-8:00 any day during the week. You may also ask to schedule after-school lab time.
