Upcoming Events

What is the APS 3-8 Online Program?

For families that choose fully remote learning from home, the APS 3-8 Online Program will serve students in 3rd through 8th grade. Please note that by choosing the 3-8 Online Program, you will be selecting a remote learning option for your child for the entire 2022-23 school year. Your student will learn from fully remote teachers and will NOT be connected to teachers or other students at their home schools.

Occasionally, fully remote learning students may receive in-person services at the Century Elementary building. This may include services for students with special needs or testing that requires students to be in person. The learning site will be located at the current Century Elementary School building. Students will be expected to log online and join live remote teachers (synchronous learning) for parts of the day every day. They will also be expected to be self-directed and working independently (asynchronous learning) for some of the day. If you would like to choose the fully remote option for the entire 2022-23 school year, we ask that you complete the APS 3-8 Online Program Enrollment Survey. Students will be on a waitlist for each grade level once slots are full.

A Day in the Life

What will a typical day learning online look like?

A student participating in the APS 3-8 Online Program will be interacting with teachers and support staff daily primarily through a variety of virtual settings using multiple online tools. There will also be opportunities for in-person support.
