There is no cost for Arizona residents between the ages of 12 and 22 to enroll in Chandler Online Academy as a full-time student.
Full-time students at COA take three 9-week half-credit courses at a time.
Attendance & Progress
While students enrolled in Chandler Online Academy have a great deal of flexibility around when they can log in to class, they must adhere to weekly attendance and progress requirements to continue to have the option to complete coursework from anywhere, to maintain enrollment in our school, and to earn credits toward graduation.
Requirements (Important, Read Carefully)
Attendance: Full-time students are required to work on classes a minimum of 24 hours each week. Attendance is reported by a parent/guardian no later than 11:00 p.m. every Sunday. Reporting attendance each week is a requirement to maintain enrollment in Chandler Online Academy as a full-time student. To submit attendance and find more information about attendance requirements, click here: Attendance. The 9-week course session begins when enrollment is complete and the student and parent have completed the Welcome Orientation.
Progress: All assignments/assessments should be submitted on or before the day they are due. If a student misses a due date, he/she can submit the assignment/assessment, but the COA Late Work Policy will apply.
