Does my child need to be vaccinated to attend iLEAD Online? 

Children can attend a public independent study program as long as they are not engaged in classroom-based instruction, regardless of their immunization status. iLEAD Online meets the criteria of an independent study program for purposes of enrollment. While you must submit any vaccine records you have, the record does not need to document all required vaccines for entry.

At iLEAD Online, we value each learner as a whole-person. Social/emotional learning, enrichment opportunities outside of academics, coaching for college/career, and personalized instruction are tools we use to give a comprehensive experience.

Our courses are full of project-based learning with opportunities for discussion and authentic engagement. Celebrate your unique strengths with us as a part of your high school experience!

Dual Enrollment: May I take courses at a college while enrolled with iLEAD Online full time?

Yes!  We encourage our learners to take college courses when it fits in their learning plan.  Learners may not take more than 11 college credits while enrolled in a high school full time.  Learners may choose to have their college courses count as part of the 4 minimum semester courses required for iLEAD Online enrollment.  It is possible to earn an AA while also enrolled in iLEAD Online.

Many learners choose to accelerate their courses, and some focus on one course at a time.

Please contact your course facilitator if you are interested in an alternative pacing calendar option.

We do offer both A and B sections year round (you may take Semester A of a course in Spring for example)

Before you will be added to any course, all learners must complete a one time orientation to master LMS navigation,  netiquette and digital citizenship training. These digital soft skills are essential in a quality online program.

What online content provider do you use?

Our facilitators are Project Based Learning experts and place emphasis on tailoring courses to your learner’s needs.  They are happy to modify projects, assignments and courses to best fit the learning plan needed to support success.

Because we focus on project based learning as opposed to computer based testing we ensure deeper, more authentic learning.  Your learner will be held to a higher accountability measure than many online programs and be required to go beyond the typical computer based testing model.
