Online education lets students with medical conditions stay on track to graduate
For students living with medical issues, attending a brick and mortar school can be difficult. Balancing their health and studies while sitting in class for long stretches at a time can cause problems. Ongoing health issues can cause frequent or extended absences from school and lead to learning gaps, anxiety or even depression.
Online learning gives students more control over their schedule so they can make regular progress in coursework without worrying about being physically present at a traditional school.
With accredited online K-12 courses from our public charter school, elementary, middle and high school students in Wisconsin can receive a top notch education without compromising their health.
eAchieve Academy’s online environment lets students with medical problems study when they can.
Full-time online students are free to take a few days off when they need to prioritize their health, and study for longer stretches when they're up to it. Our pace charts make sure they do not fall behind in their studies.
For students who still want to attend their local school, they can enroll with eAchieve part time and take one or two online classes each semester. This can help shorten the length of a normal school day,or help make up credits from incomplete classes due to missing school.
Students with chronic illness resolve school absences by switching to virtual school
Wisconsin’s leading online charter school, eAchieve Academy, is ideal for students with any type of chronic illness or chronic pain including traumatic brain injury and other disabilities.
A chronic illness or health condition is anything that lasts three months or more, affects a student’s daily life, requires frequent medical treatment or hospitalization, or extra care at home.
Far too many students nationwide suffer negative consequences from frequent absences form school due to a chronic medical condition. Some of the most common chronic conditions affecting school-age children include:
- Crohn’s Disease
- Autoimmune diseases
- Irritable bowel disease
- Sickle cell disease
…and many others. Our special education program provides personalized learning and accommodations for students with a 504 Plan.
If your student’s medical issues suddenly worsen and they must withdraw from traditional classes, eAchieve Academy’s Open Enrollment program makes it easy to quickly switch to online high school. Should their condition improve but they are still unable to attend school full-time, they can receive full credit from part-time courses online. Don’t let medical conditions prevent your student from receiving the education they deserve.

This helps chronically ill students and their families focus on education, not administrative red tape.
