A Hilliard Education

All online courses were written and are continually updated by Hilliard teachers. The courses align with what is taught in the classrooms and are designed to align with best practices in online learning as well as being innovative and engaging for all students.

Quality Online Learning

The high school online courses offer students flexibility and choices surrounding when and how they learn. Most offer options for students to choose between self-directed learning options and more traditional lessons and activities.

Staying Connected

It’s important for parents to understand the Online Academy classes are based on state standards, not seat time. While the best practice for a student is to engage during traditional school hours in order to connect with their teacher and classmates in real time, flexibility will be provided to best meet a family’s needs. Students who enroll in the Online Academy will still remain connected with their home schools. While there is an effort to develop a strong sense of belonging within the Online Academy, students will will be able to participate in all athletics, extra-curricular, and social events through their home schools.

Course Availability

Many courses in grades 9-12, are offered online.  However, before making this important decision, be sure to check which classes are offered through the Online Academy. Not all in-person classes, high school honors/AP, and some electives, are offered in the Academy.
