Two Course Formats

The Online Academy offers two course formats, each designed to accommodate  different student needs.

Regular Online Courses

MPOA offers a variety of regular online courses for students in grades 3-12. Every week students attend live teacher-led classes, where master teachers lecture on material, review assignments, and answer questions. Students will also use our learning management system to:

  • Access their course pages
  • Take quizzes and tests
  • Submit assignments
  • Review grades
  • Interact with their teachers and peers

Self-Paced Online Courses

MPOA offers a limited number of self-paced courses that provide students with the flexibility to work at their own pace. Students access their self-paced courses page through our learning management system. Students are guided by a clear weekly schedule and instructional videos, and they receive feedback in the form of automatically graded assessments. 

  • Enrollments: These courses are open for enrollment any day of the year.
  • Pacing: Some courses are split into 34 weeks (full year), and others are divided into 17 weeks (semester). However, these course can be sped up or slowed down to meet the needs of each student.
