Online Study Skills at NSHS
This Fall, Nevada State High School is offering a virtual option for their Study Skills course, giving students the opportunity to have a near completely online experience in the program. Students may apply for an in-person Study Skills exemption when enrolling for Fall 2022. Requests will be reviewed and approved based on a student’s geographical location, medical condition, or special circumstances. It is the organization’s hope that offering a virtual Study Skills option will make a real college experience more accessible for those with difficulties traveling to a NSHS Campus twice a week for class.
Dr. Jesse Welsh, Chief Executive Officer, states, “We are excited to offer this new opportunity for students beginning in Fall 2022. We know from having taught study skills online during the COVID-19 pandemic that it is possible for students to be successful in this format. We look forward to expanding availability for students to attend NSHS through this new option.”
What is Study Skills?
Changing the education environment from high school to college can be a rather difficult task. Study Skills serves as the “training wheels” to support students while they are submerged in a full college experience. The Study Skills course develops and refines skills for college remedial assistance, academic guidance and planning, and proficiency assistance. Instructors monitor, support, assist, tutor, and meet with students to work on targeting academic needs. Students are encouraged to be actively involved in their education by becoming independent, resourceful learners.
This course is required each semester to monitor student progress. After successfully completing their first semester at NSHS, students can apply for Study Skills Exemption, which allows them more freedom and access to more college course options.
To qualify for an exemption, students must meet the following requirements:
- Enrolling in math and English courses that are 100-level or higher
- Passing ALL courses from the previous semester, including high school courses
- Submitting ALL required documents for NSHS on time
- Attending ALL Transitions and COMPASS courses
- Completing all outside requirements
- Logging in to Canvas daily
- Responding to NSHS administrative contacts within 24 hours
- Following directions of NSHS staff
- Maintaining accuracy of student information (phone numbers, addresses, etc.)
An Online Learning Experience
While students approved for virtual Study Skills will not need to attend weekly classes on campus, they must participate in the Intro to College two-week orientation and monthly Transitions course in person. Still, Nevada State High School is now a more attractive school option for families interested in a virtual learning experience.
