eAcademy offers a variety of courses to OPS students in grades 9-12, as shown below in the course list, contingent upon student enrollment and instructor availability. Tuition is free during the spring and fall semesters; there is a fee for summer courses. Students must meet any prerequisite requirements listed in the High School Program Planning Guide to enroll in offered courses. For course content and prerequisite information, click here to view the High School PPG.
Not all courses are offered each term. The table below shows which courses will be offered in the fall, spring, and summer (Yes or No). Offer does not guarantee the course will run; we must meet the minimum enrollment requirements to run each course. The spring course list changes based on which courses run in the fall semester, so watch for updates. We are usually able to run more courses in the summer. See the Summer eAcademy page for summer information.
More information about how courses work is available in the Expectations channel. Click here to learn more about course structure.
- School Year: Students enrolled in a full seven-period school schedule are allowed to take one additional .50-credit eAcademy course in the fall or spring semester.
- Summer: Summer students may, after working with their counselor, consider taking two .50-credit courses. However, this is not advised as the work load is very intense and many students have not been successful. The summer session page has more information about course workload. Click here to see the summer page.
- School Year: Students may drop a school-year online course if they are unable to keep up with the workload required. Course drops should be completed by mid-semester and are usually not allowed in the final days of the semester. Since they were not successful with the school-year option they should plan to take the dropped course in the regular classroom or online during the summer session, not during the school year.
- Summer: Students may drop a summer course at any time during the summer session, but there is no fee refund after the first day of the session. If a course is dropped, students should plan to take the course in the regular classroom or online during the next summer session, not during the school year.

After the student works with their counselor on their four-year plan and is given enrollment permission, the student may enroll using the following link. The counselor's permission code is required to complete the enrollment form. We prefer that the enrollment form be completed by the student with parental assistance.
NOTE: When an enrollment is submitted, the webpage simply changes to a new screen. You will not get a confirmation email or any sort of instructions from eAcademy until about a week before courses begin. If the screen changes, your enrollment went through. If not, please correct any errors and click the submit button again. These instructions are also found at the bottom of the enrollment form.
