Mountain Lakes High School Online Academy

The Mountain Lakes High School Online Academy extends the reach of what our school has to offer by providing students an opportunity to explore subjects of interest to them using free online learning materials such as massive open online courses (MOOCs). Whether studying subjects beyond a high school level, exploring potential topics for future careers, or digging deeper into an area of personal interest, the Online Academy gives students the chance to have a direct influence over what they learn, and how they learn it. Each student who is enrolled in the Online Academy will work one-on-one with the MLHS Educational Technology Specialist to develop a Personalized Learning Plan, which meets his or her individual interests and needs. The plan may utilize a single resource, such as an online course, or pool a variety of online resources to form a comprehensive portfolio of coursework. Once the Personalized Learning Plan is in place, students will pursue their studies over the course of a semester, according to a schedule that works best for them. Successful completion will be acknowledged on the MLHS high school transcript and by the issuance of a digital badge reflecting the student's achievement.

Enrollment in the Online Academy is open to Sophomores, Juniors, and Seniors.
