CompuHigh is accredited by AdvancED [1] (formerly known as NCA CASI and SACS CASI) and is an approved course provider for National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA[2]). CompuHigh serves national U.S. and international English-speaking students in grades 9-12. CompuHigh has open, year-round enrollment and is self-paced.

CompuHigh offers core and elective courses that are taught by instructors using a mastery learning methodology.[3][4] Instruction is completely one-on-one between instructor and student, and is largely asynchronous.
