What is online learning?
Online learning provides flexibility for students to enjoy their summer and earn
high school credits. Students work at their own pace and time within the Summer
School parameters. Online learning requires a significant commitment of time and
effort in order to be successful. Self-motivation and good time management are essential.
Online classes are definitely more convenient and flexible, but are in some ways
more difficult. During Summer Session, the time commitment is even greater due to
the condensed time frame of the class. Students should plan on spending approximately
16 hours a week per class.
Students who are traveling, attending camps, or plan to be away from their virtual
class for more than 2 consecutive days during the Summer Session should notify their
instructor (once they are in the class) of the dates they will be absent. There
are a few guidelines a student MUST follow specifically during the Summer School
- Summer Session registration window is April 14 through June 4, 2014. (Schools may
close earlier or extend the closing to June 13)
- If the student is not sure they will pass their class, proceed in registration for
the class. The student may withdraw if they pass the class at their school.
- IOA offers one (1) Summer School session: June 9 - July 24.
- All course work must be completed by July 20.
- Final exams are July 21, 22, 23, and 24. Final exams will be scheduled
at the student’s high school.
- Due to the condensed time frame of the Summer Session classes, students
will only be allowed to take a maximum of TWO (2) Summer Session classes.
- Students will NOT be able to enroll in both PE I and PE II.

- If the student plans to take TWO Summer Session classes, they must register for
both classes before registration closes on June 4. Students
must work in BOTH classes concurrently (at the same time).

they must complete the first semester by June 30th to be eligible to move on into
the second semester and complete it by July 24th.
