The Richmond County Online Academy is a full-time online option for Richmond County K-12 students. With state-certified teachers and a structured curriculum, students are empowered to take charge of their education through the use of innovative technology and creative pedagogy. Classes are comprised of students from across the district and are offered Monday through Thursday. On Fridays, students will receive tutoring and participate in asynchronous learning in which they will complete their assignments within a flexible time frame.
Students are asked to make a commitment for a semester at a time. If there is still public interest in an online academy after Fall 2020, it will be provided for as long as necessary. If students wish to return to Face to Face instruction after attending the online academy, they may return to their zoned schools. Magnet school students will return to their magnet schools.
In order to ensure that all Richmond County students can take advantage of this online option, the district is committed to providing laptops and internet devices for students who need them.
