Digital Academy Logo

July 13, 2020 -- Registration is now open for Columbus City Schools Digital Academy, a self-paced completely virtual option for students in Kindergarten through 12th grade.

Registration is open through Saturday, August 1, via the Parent Portal. Click here to register.

It is important for families to keep in mind that registering for the Digital Academy is a semester-long commitment. Once school begins on September 8, students must remain in the Digital Academy through at least the first two quarters of the school year. 

Students will be permitted to return to their original school upon withdrawing from the Digital Academy. Students will not lose their lottery spots for the 2020-2021 school year if they choose to attend the Digital Academy.

Grades K-8 Options

CCS families with students in grades K-8 can choose the Digital Academy if they do not wish for their students to attend a blended learning model that combines in-person and online instruction.
