Liberty University Online Academy, in partnership with Liberty University Online, offers a program specifically designed for high school juniors and seniors who want to earn college credit while still in high school. We call this program Dual Enrollment.
Is your student active in sports? Student-athletes who wish to compete in NCAA sports at the college level must fulfill certain academic requirements in high school.
LUOA has ensured that our Enhanced Courses and Dual Enrollment courses meet the requirements to be approved by the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) for Division I athletic program participation.
How Our Courses Work
As a parent, you want to know how your student’s online curriculum works, what it requires of you, and how it will benefit your student. Our curriculum is designed with flexibility in mind.
No Set Login Times
There aren’t any set login times. Our students can access their coursework at a time that works best for them.
Our students have 24/7 access to complete their coursework at a time that fits their family’s schedule.
Standard courses run the length of an academic year, which is 41 weeks.
With the exception of some school supplies and offline activities, the vast majority of our K-12 curricula and resources are available 100% online. As long as you have a reliable internet connection, your student can complete their coursework from anywhere in the world!
Our online curriculum is text-based and filled with multimedia elements to keep students engaged with the material they are learning.
All of these features were created with the goal of helping our students retain information while enjoying the learning process! There are many reasons why you may choose online schooling – but no matter what your circumstances are, we seek to provide the resources, support, and quality that you need to ensure your student thrives in school.
What Role Do I Play in My Student’s Education at LUOA?
LUOA’s unique blend of curriculum and teacher support allows you, the parent, to take an active role in your student’s education – but not all alone. As the parent of an LUOA student, you have the important responsibility to help motivate your student, keep them on track with assignment due dates, and regularly check their progress throughout their courses.
Your involvement in your student’s education may look different as they reach higher grade levels. A 1st grader, for instance, will require more assistance than a 12th grader. Here are some examples of what your role as an LUOA parent may look like at different levels:
At the lower elementary level, you will be actively involved in most aspects of your student’s education – from helping them read and learn new concepts to submitting their coursework for grading. Once your student reaches upper elementary school, they will typically start to gain more independence and be able to navigate course content on their own – though your involvement in their daily studies will still be important, and they will need your guidance in understanding assignment requirements, learning fundamental technology skills, and submitting assignments online.
Students in middle school will likely gain increased independence in understanding the course content and assignment requirements – but it will still be important for you to check on their progress daily and eventually weekly as they continue to improve. Students typically can submit many of their assignments independently, though they may need some help with grasping the technology skills needed to complete and submit their coursework. Overall, middle school is a time for students to gradually become more self-sufficient in their day-to-day work while still receiving guidance and accountability from you.
At the high school level, students are mostly independent and can navigate through the majority of their schoolwork on their own. Typically, you will not need to monitor your student continually throughout the day – meaning your level of involvement will decrease significantly compared to previous grade levels. It will still be vital that you check on your student’s course progress at least once a week, so you can ensure they are submitting their assignments and understanding the material – as well as maintaining honesty and integrity in all of their coursework. If you’d like your high schooler to receive a greater level of accountability in their classes, check out our Enhanced Course options. These courses include live class sessions, stricter assignment deadlines, proctored exams, and more – helping your student stay on track to completion.
