Virtual Learning

University Academy may grant credit to students for completion of program courses through online, virtual delivery for students wanting or needing additional opportunities to learn. University Academy will pay for the coursework if the request is in accordance with University Academy’s online, virtual coursework (OVC) policy.  The request must also receive the School Counselor’s prior approval. Students deficient in credit may enroll in OVC. Credit from OVC credit  shall not be used for original credit when in-house courses are available. University Academy is  a college prep school, and readiness for college hinges upon students mastering University Academy's program. OVC shall be used for the purpose of ensuring that students deficient in credit are able to complete graduation requirements in a timely manner. However, a student who is on track to graduate who wishes to supplement their coursework with OVC in addition to their full, daily schedule may request permission to take additional courses from the School Counselor. 

A maximum of three (3) credits of OVC may be applied toward graduation requirements. No more than 14% of core classes may be completed online. 

The Upper School will develop learning plans for all students enrolled in two (2) or more online courses. 

If a student or student’s family wishes to appeal a denial decision, he or she may appeal the Counselor’s decision to the School Principal. If a student’s request to enroll in a course or courses is denied, the reason shall be provided in writing and it shall be for good cause.  Good cause justification for denying  a student’s enrollment request for enrollment in a course shall be based on a determination that doing so would not be in the best educational interest of the student.  In cases of denial, the School shall inform the student and the student’s family of their right to appeal to University Academy’s Board of Directors. The members of the board shall issue their decision in writing within thirty (30) calendar days.  The student’s final recourse will be an appeal to the Missouri Department of Elementary and Secondary Education, which shall provide a final decision within seven (7) calendar days.
