How to Enroll as a Full Time Online Student

Students in grades 7 - 12 who are not currently enrolled, who have withdrawn, or who are going to withdraw from any school my apply to be a full time Global Academy student.

Note: Students who plan to become eligible to be NCAA athletes should indicate this on their registration form. Global Academy courses are certified by the NCAA but we want to make sure you meet all the necessary eligibility guidelines.

All courses through the Global Academy will be 9 weeks in length. Full time online students are typically scheduled into two courses at a time, but may be scheduled for more with administrator approval.

  • Courses will be set up to start on specific dates and end 9 weeks later.

  • It is recommended that a student only take two courses per 9 weeks, but if a student is motivated and disciplined to learn the material in the course, the student may sign up for more courses, per approval of the Global Academy coordinator.

  • Each course contains a final exam that must be taken in person. Full-time Global Academy students may take their exams at the Global Academy testing center, located in the portables in the south parking lot at Mesquite High School.
