Why Gem Prep Online?

(Grades K-12)

Gem Prep: Online is Idaho’s premier virtual school with academic results that rank far above all other virtual schools. GPO’s program provides families with the ability for their students to grow from kindergarten through highschool and complete a 2-year college degree upon graduation (tuition-free).

We provide scholars with rigorous preparation and planning to assist them in meeting the expectation of college success. And, we work together with parents to accelerate the path to college and prepare kids for great futures.



We have four resource centers across the state to serve our families.

All students take four core classes and have access to a variety of electives like PE, health, art, music, keyboarding, etc.

Many of our students like to take advantage of private instruction, like music lessons, swimming lessons, or participating in robotics clubs, math clubs, attending a ballet or fine arts performance, or visiting museums, etc., We provide $300 per student each semester for these types of activities. 

Our students who live near one of our brick-and-mortar schools also enjoy taking part in some traditional school activities. They are welcome to visit our campuses and participate in things like school pictures, extra-curricular activities and clubs, use the school library, attend field trips (both virtual and physical), etc.


We are accredited through AdvancEd since 2004.
NCAA approved courses.
