Online High School - Daily and Weekly Sample Schedule

Core courses for the Davidson Academy online high school typically meet twice a week for 90-minute live sessions. Core classes meet Monday through Thursday while elective classes meet on Friday.

Each student's schedule will vary, but all students should expect to be in live sessions for a portion of each school day. Specifically, 8 a.m. to 1 p.m., Pacific Standard Time (PST), is designated each day for student participation in live sessions, or other active learning opportunities with their classmates. A typical week for a Davidson Academy online high school student may look like the sample schedule below (all times listed are in PST).

This sample schedule illustrates times that classes will meet synchronously using video conferencing software. This schedule does not take into account times that students will be working on asynchronous learning activities, such as reading, drafting essays, completing practice problems, etc. While our courses are instructor led and have traditional due dates throughout the week, students have significant control over when they work on class assignments and activities outside of the live session times.
