The Keyboarding course focuses on providing instruction in basic keyboarding skill mastery, using the touch system. The ability to operate a keyboard efficiently has never been more important than it is now. People who are skilled keyboard operators get better results than unskilled users. The development of good techniques, such as keeping eyes on copy, using correct fingering and proper key stroking is emphasized in the keyboarding course. Students will be able to key dictated letters and words without looking at the keyboard and will gain proficiency in composing at the computer. Near the end of the course, students will be introduced to proper formatting techniques, such letter writing, poem and story formatting, etc.

Courses beyond National High School's graduation requirements are considered to be electives, but repetition of courses is not acceptable for high school credit. When choosing electives with your child, we recommend that you consider your child's interests and hobbies and try to do electives that appeal to the student. Please note that the list below does not provide a course description for each elective. We consider it your responsibility to do the research to find what is part of each high school course.
Some electives will result in a more academically superior education for a student. Also, keep in mind that some scholarship applications ask a high-school counselor to evaluate the academic rigor of a student's curriculum. Electives and other choices play a significant role in determining this information. When choosing electives for a college bound student, make sure to choose more academic electives like an additional math, science, social studies, foreign language, etc.
