Frequently Asked Questions

Do I have to enroll full-time?

No. While enrolling full-time is a great option, we understand that it isn’t right for everyone. Students can choose to enroll in our school on a full or part-time basis.

Do I ever have to come to the school?

Yes. Students who enroll full-time with us are required to come to an in-person orientation the first week of the school year. Here they will check out Chromebooks, get pictures taken, and meet with teachers to learn how to be successful. Students are also required to come to campus to take end-of-year examinations. At the end of the year, students will also be required to return Chromebooks.

How many courses can I take at Kings Peak?

Students are able to take up to 3 courses during a semester and remain enrolled at their boundary school. If students want to take 4 or more courses at Kings Peak, they will enroll at KPHS.

Can I still take some courses at my boundary school?

Yes. We have a great working relationship with all of the schools in the Jordan School District. Students who enroll in our school are still able to take courses from their boundary school.

What if I only want to take 1 or 2 virtual courses?

Even if you only want to take 1 course, you will still need to complete the registration form.

Can I still play sports and participate in extracurricular activities?

Yes. Students who enroll in our school can still participate in sports and activities at their boundary school.

Where will I graduate from?

Students who enroll full-time with us will receive their diploma from Kings Peak High School. Those who enroll part-time will receive their diploma from their home school.

How will I get help if I need it?

Your teachers will be there to help. You will be able to schedule time to meet with your instructor through virtual conferencing or in-person if you need. Your teachers care about your success and are happy to meet with you.

What if I just want a place to come and work?

Students will have access to a computer lab where they can come in to work if they wish. Many students find that they work best if they have a place to go. Even if they work independently, having a dedicated place to work helps to create a successful routine.

Do I have to work at a certain time?

Teachers will provide live learning opportunities in every course each week. Students who are able to join are encouraged to do so. If they are not, the live instruction will be recorded for those unable to attend.

How much live instruction will there be?

Each week, teachers will have 2 live sessions. Each will be approximately 30 minutes. In addition to the live sessions, students will complete assignments each week based on that instruction. Combining the time spent on live instruction and independent work will be similar to the amount of time a student would have spent on the same course if it was taken in a traditional setting.

What are synchronous and asynchronous learning?

Synchronous learning is the type of learning that happens when students and teachers meet together. Asynchronous learning is the type of learning that students do independently. In each case, materials will be accessed through Canvas.

How long does it take to complete a course?

The school follows the same calendar as any other school in the district. Students begin coursework at the beginning of the term and must finish by the end of the term.

What else should I know before I get started?

More detailed information can be found in our Student Handbook.
