Class offerings range from needed electives to Advanced Placement courses and career readiness classes, like Introduction to Agriscience, Engineering and Web Design.

1,000 estimated Missourians will be able to take advantage of the expanded learning program, MOSI.
Brown tells Business Wire that MOSI is most beneficial for students in the rural school districts to move ahead with their studies, just as their other colleagues. Rural school districts seldom have no summer school or have it for just remedial classes. State-licensed teachers usually teach MOSI courses, and students have access to a virtual classroom where they can always collaborate with their teachers and fellow students.
Recent studies from the National Summer Learning Project shows that elementary school students who often attended summer learning programs usually experience an upliftment in math and reading skills. The Online and In-Person Summer Classes can boost students chances.
“The academic advantage for students with high level of attendance will be seen after the second season changes to between 20 – 25 percent of the typical annual increments in mathematics and reading,” reports on the study by ScienceDaily article.
States such as Florida and Virginia, have enlarged and improved online studies because they open access to students anywhere and aid them in learning at their own pace and convenience.
In a Parenting article, Principal of Alabama middle school Blair Andress says that online summer courses are a better alternative to adjunct the traditional school year, mostly for weak and for students who are self-starters.
