Parent Orientation & Resources for Online High School

Parent involvement and student achievement go hand in hand at Citizens High School, so we make it easy for you to be actively involved in your student’s education.

It offers a glimpse of Citizens High School, which will play a defining role in your student’s life for the next three or four years, and in that sense, is as important to you as it is to your student.
