CompuHigh, founded in 1994, bills itself as the world’s first online high school. It offers 38 courses in a variety of humanities and sciences as well as physical education that can be taken independently or as a full diploma program for students in grades nine through 12. Adults over 21 may pursue a high school diploma by combining previous high school credit with up to five credits of “life experience” and a selection of CompuHigh courses.

The nationally accredited diploma program operates under the name Whitmore School, which offers two diploma tracks: General Studies (18 credits to graduate) and College Prep (22 credits to graduate). The school also offers summer school credits for those who need them and a credit recovery program.
