As you explore the right educational path for your teen, we’re thrilled that you’re considering The Crest Online. We are a Christ-centered high school that allows students to work at their own pace while tailoring their learning to their future goals. 

Families typically come to us for three reasons:

  • They want flexibility. The standard school day does not fit all learners. Whether you want to travel, maximize family time, or partake in daytime activities, flexibility opens doors.
  • They desire a biblical education. Every course we offer emphasizes God’s truth and fosters critical thinking skills that students will need in our ever-changing world. 
  • They value academic excellence. TCO classes are rigorous, but students have dedicated teachers who support them by going the extra mile and making sure they reach their potential.

If these sound like your priorities, we encourage you to take the next step in our admissions process.
