NOTE: Each Fitness for Life quarter credit (0.25) requires a minimum of six weeks to complete. Seniors who need a semester worth of credit (0.50) before graduation do not have time to begin and then complete two quarters with EHS. Since it takes a minimum of twelve weeks to complete both quarters, we suggest you work with your counselor if you are planning to walk with your class on your graduation day.
In mid-January, EHS began offering the class Exploring Computer Science (ECS). This new class fills the computer technology/literacy requirement for graduation. The old Computer Literacy is closed to new enrollment and all requests are filled in the ECS class.
Our mission is to educate, remediate, accelerate, and graduate Utah's diverse learners with caring, qualified teachers using current technology to provide rigorous curricula, timely access to quality online instruction, and prompt professional feedback to student work.
For students who already have an EHS account, submit a help request to have your EHS SIS username sent to you. Help requests are processed 5 days a week.
||<-- Students new to EHS must first Register for their EHS SIS username and password. New accounts are processed once a week.
|NOTE: if you request a new EHS account and you already have an existing EHS account, be prepared to wait before your classes can be granted. Students are allowed only one EHS account, so the duplicate account request will need to be reconciled with the original account.
||<-- If you are enrolled in a class, you can log-in to your class in Learn.
|If you've forgotten your password, but do know your new EHS SIS username and also know the e-mail address associated with your EHS SIS account, go to EHS SIS and use the "Forgot your password?" link.

EHS is NOT a Quick Fix
- Letter-grade, quarter credits
Each EHS class, when completed successfully, generates one-quarter (0.25) of high-school credit. All classes generate letter grades to be added to the student's transcript. Students need to work closely with their teacher to earn the letter grade they expect. EHS does NOT offer pass/fail credit for any class.
- Acceleration, remediation, graduation
Most EHS students take classes from EHS to make-up failed quarter classes or to accelerate their graduation from their local high school . The Electronic High School grants diplomas to a very restricted group of Utah students: those who are home-schooled exclusively, those who have dropped out of school and their class has graduated, and district referrals. Students admitted to the EHS graduation track need 24 credits to earn a diploma. Students must complete a minimum of 25% of their 24 credits (6 credits-24 quarter classes) at EHS to qualify to earn a diploma. The EHS does not grant diplomas to non-Utah students. ~ Currently the diploma option has been suspended. ~
- EHS classes take time
Experience tells us it takes about 50 hours to complete a quarter credit class, or about 200 hours for a full credit. Some classes require more.
- Classes are rigorous
The courses are rigorous and require dedication by our students; however, each credit-granting class has a Utah teacher to mentor students for success.
- Class enrollment dates are flexible
The Electronic High School offers a open-entry / open-exit curriculum based on the Utah Core Curriculum. With a few exceptions, students are able to enroll any day of the year and work at their own pace until the class is completed within the 10 week timeframe.
- EHS students abide by the school honor code
"As a student of the Electronic High School, I agree to turn in my assignments in a timely manner, do my own work, not share my work with others, and treat all students, teachers, and staff with respect."
- Work at your own pace
We expect students to complete a quarter class within TEN weeks and to submit work consistently - at least weekly - to remain on class rolls. The one exception is Fitness for Life which has a 7-week window to complete each quarter class.
- Accredited by the Northwest Accreditation Commission
The Electronic High School is accredited by the Northwest Accreditation Commission. Students who complete courses from the Electronic High School will have a course completion certificate mailed to their local school of residence with the grade and credit earned.
- Can I do my EHS work from home?
You can work on your class from computers connected to the Internet. At the end of each class, you must take and pass a proctored exam at a Utah school, library, or testing center. Local licensed Utah teachers are able to volunteer to proctor final tests for EHS students. The proctor signs up with EHS and is certified. When the EHS teacher declares a student is ready for a final test, the student arranges with an EHS-certified proctor to take the class final test in the presence of that proctor at an education location here in Utah. More information about the process is available inside the classes.
