Access Program at Academy Online HS

Access logo for AOHS

Academy Online High School offers a full time online program for 9th-12th grade students called Access at Academy Online.  This program is intended for students with specific circumstances that prevent them from being able to enroll in The Village program or go to an in-building high school.  This online program is not self-paced;  however, there may be some opportunity to work ahead.

Care is taken to ensure each student enrolling in Access is prepared to meet expectations, has demonstrated the skills necessary to be successful in an online environment, and understands the challenges of an online only education.  As such, each student wishing to apply to Access meets with one of our counselors first.  If it is determined that the student is a good fit for this program, the counselor will help to build an individualized schedule of courses for the student.   For questions about Access, please contact Kelli Estepp or Kimi Cain at 719-234-1671.  Counselors and other contact information is at the bottom of this page.

This program is not intended for students who are significantly behind in credits. 

AOHS has small class sizes limited to 40 students per grade level, this number includes Village and Access students.

AOHS Lab

We have work space and help available at AOHS, in the Library.   Access students are encouraged to use the Lab.    We request that all new Access students come to AOHS Lab a few times to begin the semester.   If students are behind in classes, we will request that he or she uses AOHS Lab until the student shows sufficient progress. 

Lab hours:  

Monday through Thursday

 8:15 am - 9:15 am OR 1:30 pm - 3 pm

Fridays are by appointment only due to a varied Friday schedule each week.

More help times are available by appointment.   Contact Kimi Cain to schedule.
