Whether students are considering a college and/or career pathway in Production Arts/Music, Social Media Marketing, Patient Care, Education, or Industrial Design, our diverse options of electives prepare students with pertinent job skills and certifications while feeding their passions.

We know that life is busy, so whether students are working, training on the athletic field, or on-the-go for summer, Level Up Virtual Academy offers the flexibility families need with the rigor and comprehensive support students deserve. 

Weekly live sessions are hosted for each course by our passionate, highly-qualified content teachers to provide academic guidance and support as students work independently through the course material.

Level Up FAQs

Students will take two six-week-long courses starting July 1st with a mandatory orientation on June 30th.

No, we are a year-round school and offer the same level of rigor as a traditional high school all 12 months of the calendar year.

Students are expected to complete work daily Monday-Saturday during this learning period. These are intensive courses and students need to designate 4-6 hours a day to find success.

All Level Up students are paired with an Elite Teacher of Record (TOR) who provides ongoing individualized support as students complete their courses. Credit Recovery and Acceleration students have access to weekly Zoom live sessions with highly qualified content teachers and learning lab hours for consistent academic support.

Elite Academic Academy has spent years refining the art of remote learning and providing a personalized approach to education. You will log into your classes daily Monday-Saturday to complete work and meet with content teachers for
virtual live sessions and learning labs. You will also have a Teacher of Record (TOR) who is there to help guide and support you through your academic journey and find success at Elite.

No. If you are attending summer school at your comprehensive high school on the same dates as our Level Up Learning Period, you are not eligible to also enroll in and attend Elite Academic Academy.

Elite Academic Academy is a public school and MUST follow IDIEA law. Students with IEPs who enroll MUST participate in a 30-day transition IEP and ensure FAPE is received while with us. We will work with you and your home district
to ensure a seamless transition if you choose to only stay with Elite for our Level Up learning period.

Parents have the right to choose how long students stay at Elite. Many choose only to stay for Level Up and return to
their comprehensive setting for the remainder of the year. We also are an option for families who have a student who struggles in the traditional high school setting and are looking for a more personalized approach to help them graduate.

Elite Academic Academy has very limited CIF offerings. Golf and Equestrian are currently available.

Parents/students can request an official transcript through our website. Transcripts will be mailed directly to the home or to the next school the student will be attending per parent request.
