High School Course Offerings

For students entering OLA behind in credits or with a history of struggling academically, we also offer "Essentials" versions of many of our classes.
OLA offers a wide variety of electives to allow students to pursue areas of interest or learn more about possible careers. See the list of elective offerings here.
For students wishing to design their own class, OLA has a process for guiding students through completing an Independent Study for high school credit.
OLA supports students in finding and establishing internships with business mentors so the student can earn credit while getting "on the job" career-related experience.
Students holding a wage-earning job can earn elective credit for the time spent on the job.
The state's new graduation requirements include scoring at a minimum level in math and English on a state-designated assessment. For students unable to reach the minimum score on one or both of those assessments, Capstone Projects provide an alternative way for students to meet the state requirement by demonstrating proficiency in math or English. Capstone Projects are also great resume builders for college applications.
OLA has Concurrent Enrollment agreements with many colleges around the state. OLA 11th & 12th graders can take up to six college credits per year for approved classes and OLA will pay the tuition. The classes count for both college credit and high school credit.
OLA offers French, German, Spanish, Chinese, Italian, Japanese, Russian, and 60 more languages!
