Our mission is to educate, remediate, accelerate, and graduate Utah's diverse learners with caring, qualified teachers using current technology to provide rigorous curricula, timely access to quality online instruction, and prompt professional feedback to student work.
EHS Services for Utah students:
EHS offers open-entry/open-exit classes for Utah students at no cost to Utah students or schools. A limited number of EHS classes are available this summer. Online Driver Education is not available from EHS.
New class requests and account requests are in hiatus temporarily. With the upcoming budget shortfall, a list of classes and services for next year has not yet been determined. Account and class requests will resume when the budget for FY14 has been set. We apologize for the delay. Thank you for your patience.
Students work with their local school counselor to select the desired classes. Credit earned at EHS can be used for credit recovery, original credit and credit acceleration.

- Letter-grade, quarter credits
Each EHS class, when completed successfully, generates one-quarter (0.25) of high-school credit. All classes generate letter grades to be added to the student's transcript. Students need to work closely with their teacher to earn the letter grade they expect. EHS does NOT offer pass/fail credit for any class. As soon as the proctored final test is taken and passed, the final grade earned in the class is sent to the student's school of record here in Utah as an official quarter credit.
- Acceleration, remediation, graduation
Most EHS students take classes from EHS to make-up failed quarter classes or to accelerate their graduation from their local high school . The Electronic High School grants diplomas to a very restricted group of Utah students: those who are home-schooled exclusively, those who have dropped out of school and their class has graduated, and district referrals. Students admitted to the EHS graduation track need 24 credits to earn a diploma with a minimum of 25% of the credits being earned at EHS. The EHS does not grant diplomas to non-Utah students.
- EHS classes take time
Experience tells us it takes about 50 hours to complete a quarter credit class, or about 200 hours for a full credit. Some classes require more.
- Classes are rigorous
The courses are rigorous and require dedication by our students; however, each credit-granting class has a Utah teacher to mentor students for success.
- Class enrollment dates are flexible
The Electronic High School offers a open-entry / open-exit curriculum based on the Utah Core Curriculum. With a few exceptions, students are able to enroll any day of the year as there is room on the class rolls and work until the class is completed.
- EHS students abide by the school honor code
"As a student of the Electronic High School, I agree to turn in my assignments in a timely manner, do my own work, not share my work with others, and treat all students, teachers, and staff with respect."
- Work at your own pace
We expect students to complete a quarter class within FOUR months and to submit work consistently - at least weekly - to remain on class rolls. The one exception is Fitness for Life which has a 7-week window to complete each quarter class.
- Accredited by the Northwest Accreditation Commission
The Electronic High School is accredited by the Northwest Accreditation Commission. Students who complete courses from the Electronic High School will have a course completion certificate mailed to their local school of residence with the grade and credit earned.
You can work on your class from computers connected to the Internet. At the end of each class, you must take and pass a proctored exam at a Utah school, library, or testing center. Local licensed Utah teachers are able to volunteer to proctor final tests for EHS students. The proctor signs up with EHS and is certified. When a student is ready for a final test, the EHS teacher adds the student to the proctored test area. The student arranges with an EHS-certified proctor to take the class final test in the presence of that proctor at an education location here in Utah. More information about the process is available inside the classes.
