Information for families considering our program


What is Central Online Academy?

Central Online Academy (COA) is Central School District’s online learning program. The program serves students in Kindergarten - 12th grade from all five of our district schools. When students enter the program, they still are considered to be part of their home schools. For example, students who complete 12th grade in COA, with all Central School District graduation requirements met, will still receive a diploma from Central High School.


Independent work and the important role of parents & guardians

COA students receive core instruction with teachers through our partnership with Stride K12. Students are required to attend live synchronous class sessions for approximately an hour each day. This requires students to be able to engage in independent learning, and learning supported by a parent or guardian on a daily basis. Because of that, parents & guardians take on much more of a role in their student’s learning in the COA program and serve as a “Learning Coach” by helping to:


  • Provide academic support on assignments and projects

  • Provide motivation and guidance throughout the school year

  • Ensure students are on track with assignments and coursework

  • Assist the student in maintaining communication with teachers

  • Assist with reporting daily attendance

  • Assist students in navigating the platform websites and materials, and seeking out technical support when needed


Time commitments for parents/ guardians

  • Learning Coaches for students in grades 6-8 spend 1 to 3 hours per day working with their student. They will make sure the student attends all required Class Connect sessions, keep the student motivated and on track, and helping them redirect when they become distracted.

  • Learning Coaches of high school students spend 1 to 3 hours per day working with their student to develop time-management skills and support the student in reaching the important milestone of graduating from high school.


How do students enter the program?

Families can request to enter the program by completing the “Application for Central Online Academy”. COA staff will then review the application and follow up with your family.


We require all families, even families new to the district, to first enroll at their home school, and then complete the transfer process. This gives our staff a chance to know your student better and for you to learn more both about their home school as well as our online program.
