Liberty University Online Academy (LUOA) is an accredited online private Christian school for kindergarten through 12th-grade students. It was founded in 2007 and now enrolls more than 5,000 students from all 50 states and over 20 countries.
Homeschool families are responsible for keeping records, being aware of educational requirements, and developing transcripts. Families enrolled with LUOA are not required to keep records of this sort. The staff ensures requirements are met and issues student transcripts. Students graduate with a diploma from an accredited high school. You should contact your local school district for any additional requirements your student may need to fulfill.
Yes, a student is considered full time when they are enrolled in at least five credits. Families who would like to continue homeschooling may choose to take up to four courses with LUOA to supplement their curriculum.
LUOA provides year-round schooling with open enrollment. Full-year courses must be completed within 10 months, and semester-long (half-credit) courses must be completed within five months.
LUOA educators and Liberty University professors design our unique curriculum specifically for our students.
Teachers and academic advisors make sure that your student is on track and getting the best education possible. Teachers grade written work such as essays and projects, and communicate grades and comments to students and parents. They can be contacted through the messaging system within the curriculum. Academic advisors ensure proper course enrollment, provide monthly report cards, correspond with parents and students, update transcripts, and serve as liaisons between teachers and families. Subject specialists are available by phone from 8:30 a.m. -5 p.m. EST to answer questions about course material.
LUOA courses are $549 each. For full-time students, the cost of tuition is approximately $2,500 to $3,000 per school year. Some families may qualify for special discounts.
