Fridley Public Schools


Rigor, flexibility, opportunity, and access

enrolling for 2022-23 school year

Fridley Online Academy (FOA) is a full-time online option for Fridley students, grades 7-12. We use both the Edgenuity platform as well as Google Classroom to deliver the curriculum. Licensed Fridley teachers serve as both content specialists and mentor teachers. The model is asynchronous for 4 days of the week, allowing students to set their own schedules. One day per week, students need to be available for scheduled Google Meets with their teachers. Students can expect to work on their classes 4-5 hours per day; attendance is taken daily based on students’ work time. Students who receive special education services will want to consult with their case manager for more information. 

For high school students, we offer all of the required courses for graduation; graduating seniors receive a Fridley High School diploma. Our course offerings are more limited than in-person courses; please note that we cannot offer IB Diploma courses via our Online Academy. 

Fridley Schools provides each student with a Chromebook; you must have internet access that will support online meetings and streaming videos.

Enrollment in FOA for the 2022-23 school year is in alignment with Fridley High School’s in-person course registration due date of Monday, February 7th. Please note that enrolling in FOA includes a commitment for the entire school year. Due to staffing requirements and course structures, students will not be able to switch between the Online Academy and in-person learning during the school year.
