Next Start Date
Are you ready to take the next step towards partnering with Liberty University Online Academy? We’re excited to show you all that our school has to offer. Here you’ll find important information about enrollment, student assessment, the structure of our online learning environment, student testimonials, and answers to frequently asked questions.
Enrollment requires 7 main steps. You will be asked to complete 2 of those steps — submitting an application and completing Financial Check-In. LUOA will complete the remaining steps and provide you with the information and access needed to begin your coursework.
Step 1: Submit an online application.
Step 2: An admissions counselor will call or email you within 24-48 hours with information regarding creating your student’s account.
Step 3: Your student’s admissions counselor will request records — either a report card or a high school transcript.
Step 4: Your student’s admissions counselor will draft a personalized class schedule based on his/her records.
Step 5: Once the schedule is finalized, your student’s admissions counselor will register your student for the start date of your choice.
Step 6: Complete Financial Check-In.
Step 7: Upon completing Financial Check-In, you will receive a welcome email from your academic advisor before courses begin. No work needs to be submitted before your first day!
Students have 3 main avenues of support while enrolled in LUOA: academic advisors, teachers, and subject specialists. Parents are encouraged to take an active role in their child’s education and develop the parent/teacher/student relationship as in a traditional classroom. Students are assigned an academic advisor specifically trained in elementary, middle, or high school. Families can contact their academic advisor by phone or email with questions about computer problems, recordkeeping, class schedule, transcripts, etc.
Academy teachers are professionals who are licensed in their state, certified by ACSI, or who hold an advanced degree in their subject area. The teacher assesses student work and is responsible for the day-to-day academic well-being of each student. Teachers can be contacted through the messaging system within the curriculum but are not available by phone. Parents and students can access grades anytime via the online grade book. Subject specialists are individuals who are available by phone at (866) 418-8741 from 8:30 a.m. – 5 p.m. EST for students who need help understanding the course material.
After completing the lessons — which are presented in text and video format — students complete problems, assignments, and tests electronically. Parents and students have instant access to grades and can quickly gain feedback regarding the student’s progress. Each day, LUOA teachers grade written work, such as essays and projects, and communicate grades and any comments to parents and students. Due dates and past due notices help students adhere to their weekly lesson plan.
The Online School Year
A school year consists of two 18-week semesters. A full-time student should complete the 180-day school year in 10 months. The curriculum is self-paced with completion based on student ability and daily assignment completion. Students may move at a faster pace but are strongly advised to master content and not rush through the curriculum.
