Kaplan University, a veteran online school that also has campuses across the country, has opened up an online summer school for secondary school students. Students who have summer travel plans that conflict with educational obligations can manage both, with a little discipline and internet access.
According to the Atlanta Journal Constitution, both the school and the online summer program concept are a hit. County school systems are offering online summer school options, as is a state virtual school. In metro Atlanta, online high schools' summer school enrollment is increasing while traditional summer school attendance is slipping. The Atlanta area is composed of several counties and is one of the larger metro areas in the nation, as well as one of the fastest-growing. In Gwinnett County, online enrollment increased 25% from 2008 to summer 2009, while the number of traditional high schools required for summer school classes dropped from four to three.
In Fulton County, where most of the city is located, online summer school enrollment jumped over 50% while traditional enrollment dropped by 25%. The costs for Kaplan's Virtual Education summer school are competitive with public school fees as well. In Fulton, DeKalb and Cobb Counties fees range from $500 to $600 for a full credit; the cost of the four-week Kaplan session is $600.
The Kaplan summer school program is structured as an "online private school," complete with a principal, Miriam Rube. The range of programs that are offered varies considerably.
