Our Scholar Experience

Flexible, student-centered learning with connection. 

Internet Academy blends asynchronous (on your own schedule) and synchronous (at the same time) learning.  Most learning happens asynchronously.

Live Zoom Sessions: Synchronous learning

K-5 scholars meet with their teacher and classmates daily between 9 am-10:30 am.
6-12 scholars set up their daily schedule around one live Zoom lesson per class, per week. There is also one optional live Zoom support session per class per week.

Assignments, Quizzes & Assessments: Asynchronous learning

Asynchronous lessons are completed daily according to the Written Student Learning Plan for each course. Scholars set their own schedule for asynchronous learning with the help of a learning coach in the home. The learning coach is identified by the family during registration and can be relative or other caring adult.

Learning time requirements:  5.5 – 6 hours each day for a total of 27.75 hours per week.

Activities: scholars have opportunities to join virtual clubs and activities! Scholars can also participate in sports and activities offered at their home school district.

Scholars meet all Washington State graduation requirements  and can participate in our in-person commencement ceremony.

I chose online school ... I now work every day and am on track with all of my work. One of the things that helps me throughout the week is the compliments and encouragement of the teachers at Internet Academy.
