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 register?
A: You can complete a registration up to a year before the class begins.
Q: Do I need to complete a new registrationfor every class?
A: No. Once you have registered for an online course, you can continue enrolling in the next class without reregistering. If you take a class and then sit out for a year without taking another class, you will need to reregister.
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.
