About Our Program
Since 1994, Satellite High School has been providing courses for students all over the country and the world to help them reach their goal to graduate. We truly hope we can help you reach this goal too.
If you will be taking courses through Satellite, here are the steps that you need to take:
Verify with your school counselor that Satellite credits will be accepted by your school.
Verify with your counselor EXACTLY which courses you need to take. Some students will need to take specific courses required for graduation. Others will only need elective credits. If you need elective credits, you may choose from the Satellite courses listed in our “elective” section or you may choose from any English, history, math, or science courses we offer. This gives students the opportunity to take courses that fit their interest level or help them prepare for college. Do NOT take a course through us if you have already passed it through your school!
Students may enroll in and take any semester of any course at any time year round.
Students may take just the first or second semester of any 1.0 course if that’s all they need.
Complete the registration, proctor, and order forms in this packet. Mail the completed forms to Satellite along with your payment. There is a one-time $25 registration fee, and courses cost $70 per 0.5 credit (semester course) and $140 per 1.0 credit (two semester course). Payment may be made by money order, cashier’s check, personal check, or school check payable to: Satellite High School. We cannot accept debit or credit card orders at this time
How Our Program Works
Once we receive your registration and order forms, course work will be printed and post mailed to the student within 7-10 business days. The course fee includes all reading material, assignments, and exams. Students do not need to have internet access or computers. Courses require a combination of homework assignments and/or exams.
The student completes the homework assignments at home and mails them back to our office.
The student will need to choose a test proctor in his/her area. The test proctor should be an active or retired teacher or counselor at any school level-elementary through college. All exams are sent to the student’s proctor. The student arranges with his/her proctor to take one or more exams as he/she is ready.
The proctor mails the completed exams back to Satellite.
Once all homework and exams have been received in our office, the student’s work will be graded in the order it was received. We do not grade anything until all work has been received for a given course. It may take up to 10 business days to grade. It is up to the students to make sure work is returned in time to meet any deadline their schools may have.
Once all assignments and exams have been graded, Satellite will send both the student and his/her counselor a transcript listing the course(s) and grade(s) earned. Assignments/exams with grades of 59% (F) and below may be retaken to try to raise the score—the first and second scores are averaged for a final score.
Our program is open year round. Students may enroll and order courses at any time and complete them as slowly or quickly as they want to.
Please contact our office if you have any questions.
