Boost Your Student’s High School Experience with Our Enhanced Courses

Enhanced Courses are an excellent option for students who want to receive additional accountability and interaction with teachers as they complete their assignments. These courses can help prepare your student for college by offering an even more rigorous high school education.


Here are some important things to note about LUOA’s Enhanced Courses:


  • The NCAA has approved Enhanced Courses for future student-athletes! Learn more about NCAA Approval.
  • There are only 2 start dates for Enhanced Courses each semester. Please review the Important Dates page for more information about Enhanced Course availability.
  • Teachers will hold weekly, recorded teaching and tutorial sessions.
  • LUOA allows students 2 unexcused absences from live sessions per semester. The teacher gives a participation grade based on attendance at live teacher sessions and participation in discussion boards.”
  • Teachers determine the schedule for these sessions and give the schedule to the student in the first week of courses.
  • LUOA notifies students when they are 2 weeks behind. If a student falls 30 days or more behind, he/she will be administratively withdrawn from the course and given a grade of FN.
  • Students will have check-ins with teachers before tests that will give them the opportunity to ask the teacher questions and clarify any content. Additionally, an adult must proctor the semester and final exams.
  • There is a $99.00 fee for each full-year enhanced class and a $49.50 fee for each semester-long enhanced class.


To take full advantage of our Enhanced Courses, it’s important that students stay on track with their scheduled assignments. This allows them to benefit from discussions with their teachers and classmates and helps them become accustomed to meeting deadlines — a skill that will aid them in college and beyond! Additionally, assignments for Enhanced Courses must be turned in by the due date to receive full credit. For each day the assignment is not submitted, the student will have 5% deducted from the assignment grade with a maximum deduction of 20%.*
