  • All junior high and high school 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. Beginning in 2020/21, students will be required to meet at least monthly with a mentor to discuss their progress and set goals.

    Students can choose to enroll in one the following types of classes (or a mix):

    • Teacher-paced, virtual classes where students will with their teacher on a regular basis, at least twice each week, and complete assignments when not working directly with their teacher.
    • Student-paced, where the student completes the course with a teacher facilitator

    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 at 55 N Greenfield Road in Gilbert beginning in August.
