General Information

  • Want to Enroll in an Online Couse?

    Your School Guidance Counselor Can Help!

     Interested students should apply through their school guidance counselor. Selection is based on the following criteria:

    • Lack of course offering at current school
    • Scheduling conflict
    • Make up credits from out of district transfer or participation in Fine Arts, etc.
    • Advancement to allow for additional electives or IB/AP courses in high school career
    • Remediation of lost credit.

    Online classes are available to all Horry County School students but not all students are a good fit for online instruction. In completing and passing an online class, we have found that successful students are good readers, well organized, self-disciplined, able to work alone, and have excellent computer skills. Students also must be highly motivated. Students may not enroll in more than two online classes per semester without special permission from the local school principal.

    Online courses are available through the VirtualSC and Horry County Virtual School. Visit the links below for enrollment information. Choose the appropriate link below to create an account or request a course.

    In addition, an online credit recovery program is available through each high school which allows students to recover credit in a course for which they may have done poorly. Credit recovery courses are offered in partnership with Apex Learning. The school guidance counselor can help students decide if the credit recovery program is the right fit.  


    Please contact HCS Virtual for additional information and enrollment details.
