Washington’s first online public school  Whether you’re down the street in a Federal Way school or across the state, you can excel in our individualized, one-on-one environment in Washington’s first online public school. All it takes is a web connection, a computer, self-management skills, and a drive to learn.

iA Student – While many of our students reside in Federal Way, we have had students enroll from other cities, states, and even countries. Many of our students travel to competitions while still attending a rigorous, standards-based school. Other students augment their home school curriculum with our courses. Regardless of why they come, our students enjoy a flexible and challenging learning experience through iA.

Ideal for students participating in band, drama, or other time-intensive school activities, iA can free space in the school schedule. Additionally by enrolling in summer session, you can make up credits or get a jump on the coming year.

Courses  Our fully-accredited courses are listed in our Course Catalog, which offers courses from primary through secondary grades. With new courses coming online each term, we continue to expand our offerings to meet student needs with many courses available.
