LUOA can help any school expand its course offerings with middle school and high school electives, summer courses, credit recovery, and Dual Enrollment.

One challenge facing many Christian parents is the lack of private, Christian school alternatives within their communities. While some parents choose to homeschool their children, others can’t afford to leave their jobs in order to do so. You may have always wanted to provide a Christian school alternative to your community, but with the cost of hiring teachers, buying curriculum, providing a library, and all the other associated expenses, you may have not been able to. With Liberty University Online Academy, you can.
You can provide an opportunity for the parents in your community to enroll their children in a quality, Christ-centered school from your church or academic facility! With your own campus, you will be supported by the vast educational resources of Liberty University. LUOA provides a Christ-centered curriculum, lesson planning, an online library, certified teachers, advisors, and trained staff. LUOA’s goal is to help your organization provide a quality Christian education to your local community while minimizing the costs associated with a traditional Christian school.

Liberty University Online Academy, through an affiliation with Liberty University Online, offers a Dual Enrollment program, which is specifically designed for high school juniors and seniors who want to earn college credit while still in high school. As a school, you can allow your juniors and seniors to take Dual Enrollment courses with LUOA as a way to earn college credit! LUOA offers access to over 180 courses, 15 Associate of Arts tracks, and 8 certificates.
Dual Enrollment is a great way to help your students save time and money by allowing them to complete college courses before graduating from high school. Please take some time to review the benefits of LUOA’s Dual Enrollment program.
Research has revealed the long-term benefits of online learning. As a result, many traditional schools are looking to offer online content as a part of their daily school schedule. In partnership with Liberty University Online Academy, your school can integrate our online, Christ-centered curriculum into its course offerings. As a school, you can select as few or as many courses as you need, from various grade levels, to offer to your students. LUOA will teach, grade, and administer all aspects of the course(s) to provide your institution with the support it needs to thrive!
Implement blended learning in your school through LUOA and enjoy the benefits of a brick-and-mortar school along with all of the benefits of online education.
Logging On to Canvas
Click on this curriculum link for quick access. Each student must use his/her Liberty username and password to log on to their account
In order to help your students and staff become familiar with our courses and online platform, we have created our Orientation Courses. I strongly recommend you make these a requirement for all parties involved.
Teacher Communication and Support
Teachers have 24 hours to answer messages and 24-48 hours to grade assignments. If you would like your students to have extra help from their teacher(s), they can message them through the curriculum platform to set up a meeting. Please make sure your students take advantage of this feature as it will help them develop good communication with their teachers!
One tool that we provide to help them help your students is a Canvas Observer Account. This special account grants schools access to the student’s account in order to view their lessons, progress, and grades. If you haven’t already set up this account or have any questions about it, please let me know. This tool is invaluable. The person who submits the applications for your students is automatically made an observer for these students.
Note: If student schedule (such as an athletic practice schedule) conflicts with a live session, you need to submit this form to LUOAAffiliates@liberty.edu to request for the student to be excused. Once your form has been approved, your student will need to watch the live session recording each week and complete the attendance survey form provided by the teacher.

LUOA uses a 10 point grading scale:
Blank Assignments Policy:
In order for students to receive credit for a course, the following conditions have to be met: All semester exams and module tests have to be completed, all Tier 3 projects or papers have to be completed, and fewer than 5 zeros per semester exist in the gradebook for blank submissions.
First Day of the Course
Your students are able to access their Dual Enrollment course through Blackboard and/or Canvas. Please save these links for simple access in the future. In order to prevent an automatic course drop, please have your students complete the Course Requirements Checklist in each course by Wednesday of Week 1. In addition, it is important that your students check their inbox in the platform their course is found to avoid missing important messages from their professor.
The textbooks for all of our Dual Enrollment courses are now available online as Inclusive Access in order to provide direct access to your students anytime, from anywhere. In addition, we will be covering the cost of online textbooks indefinitely for Dual Enrollment courses!*
*This is subject to change at any time.
A minimal number of courses have course fees to cover assessments and other additional resources (ACCT 211, CSIS 212, GLST 220, and AVIA courses). These course fees are the responsibility of the parent, these fees are not invoiced to the school. To verify these fees yourself, you can review our Dual Enrollment courses page, select the correct Undergraduate option, and focus on the Campus Online option for your course.
Students should expect to access their materials on the first day of class through either Blackboard or Canvas. Further instructions on where and how to access these materials will be provided through each course.
