A Quarter Century of Online Excellence!
We have 25 years of experience providing highly interactive online AP classes, with more than 1000 students enrolled in our classes during the last school year. We are proud of the academic community that has developed as homeschooled high school students connect with their bright, motivated classmates from all across our nation and even around the world. NOTE: Our classes are not available to public or private brick-and-mortar school students or to adults.
At Pennsylvania Homeschoolers we offer three kinds of courses:
- AP Courses. The 2023-2024 school year will be our 26th year of offering Advanced Placement (AP) classes online to homeschooled students worldwide. To learn more about our classes, please click on the "Our Courses" on the sidebar. Class reviews from past students and their parents are linked at the end of each course description.
- Honors Courses. During the 2023-2024 school year we will again be offering honors classes online to homeschooled students worldwide. These classes prepare students to participate in AP classes in the future.
- Summer Courses In the summer of 2023 will will again be offering Summer Enrichment Online classes ranging from college application essay prep, to a class about learning to bird, to STEM classes. (You don't have to be homeschooled to take them.)
Our classes develop a community of scholars who interact through class postings, course-related projects and games, responding to one another's work, discussions, and much more. For student perspectives on our classes, watch these AP Student Panels from PHAA's Virtual High School at Home Conferences:
Statistics provided to us by the College Board show that almost 3/4 of our students earn top grades of "4" or "5" on the AP exams that they take:
- 48% of those exams earned 5's ("Extremely qualified" - the equivalent to a college A+ or A)
- 25% earned 4's ("Very qualified" - the equivalent of a college "A-")
- 16% earned 3's ("Qualified" - the equivalent of a college "B")
- 7% earned 2's ("Possibly qualified" - the equivalent of a college "C")
- only 4% earned 1's ("No recommendation")
