Being Successful in AEO

Academic Excellence Online

Creating a routine or schedule is important in order to make steady progress through courses.  All curriculum is released on a Wednesday to Wednesday weekly calendar, which means students always have a week (including a weekend) to complete assignments, before the next week's worth of material is released.  Students don't need to work on each class every day.  A routine or schedule can be established where the student may choose to work on a class or two one day and other classes on another day, (depending on how much time the student has or wants to spend on a particular class). 

For example, on Wednesday perhaps spend an hour or two on geometry and an hour or two on biology.  Then on Thursday do the same for English and history, then Friday spend some time on art and health and maybe one other class; keep rotating through all your classes like this over the course of a week and you should have no problem completing the work by the time the next batch is released.  As you do this for a couple of weeks, you will get a better understanding of how much time it takes to get everything done.  Then you can decide if you want to take a day off here and there or if you would rather do a little bit each day to get things done by Tuesday night. 

There are many ways you can build your personal schedule, but the key is to be consistent and disciplined to do it each and every week so that every class gets done, just like you would if you attended a seat-based high school.
