High School Jump Start Courses
We are excited to offer online Jump Start courses for high school students with an option for dual credit.
High School Students
Begin earning college credit while still in high school! With Faith Online Learning you can complete 18 college credits between our online Jump Start courses and our summer Jump Start program—that’s the equivalent of one semester. You can begin taking on-campus Jump Start classes the summer following your sophomore year. You can begin taking online Jump Start courses the fall semester of your junior year. Here is the suggested schedule to complete all 18 credits before enrolling as a full-time student at Faith for college.
|Summer before Junior Year||First Jump Start course||2 credits|
|During your Junior Year||Two online courses (fall and spring)||6 credits|
|Summer before Senior Year||Second Jump Start course||2 credits|

Q: Can I take these classes through PSEO?
A: No. Most public schools will not approve Bible classes for PSEO.
Q: When can I start taking online classes as a high school student?
A: You can begin taking online classes in the fall semester of your junior year. You can begin taking Jump Start summer courses the summer before your junior year.
Q: When should I apply?
A: You can complete an application up to a year before the class begins.
Q: Do I need to complete a new application for every class?
A: No. Once you have applied for an online course, you can continue enrolling in the next class without reapplying. If you take a class and then sit out for a year without taking another class, you will need to reapply.
Q: What do I do once I am enrolled?
A: Once you become an online student, you will receive login information from Faith. You will then be required to take a short online orientation before your first class.
