Online learning provides an engaging and effective means to comprehend and achieve mastery of course content and earn credits toward graduation. It also builds computer technology and higher order thinking skills that are critical for success in today’s digital age. But online learning is not for everyone. It requires the ability to work independently and the discipline to stay on track. While online learning lets students set their own schedule, students must still progress at a pace that enables them to meet assignment and test deadlines and complete coursework within the semester.
Catoosa Online Academy - COA
The Catoosa Online Academy is an extension of our middle and high schools. All students must meet the state requirements established by the Georgia Department of Education and their schedules will reflect these requirements. Students remain a part of their home schools and may participate in any extra curicular activity. Diplomas will be granted by the high school your child would attend. The COA curriculum is a blending of an online curriculum and Catoosa County instructor’s resources. Students interested in attending the Catoosa Online Academy should contact their home zone school.
