Course Catalog Summer 2020 - 8th Grade through Adult

All LWA onSchool courses are listed below. Due to fixed class sizes, courses will fill up and be capped.

Our classes are held ‘live’ via our virtual streaming platform. We do not use pre-recorded lessons, so there is constant student-child feedback and interaction.

Courses are offered only during the times and dates listed.

LWA onSchool has a ‘selective’ open admission policy. LWA does not discriminate based on sex, gender, race, or creed. We do vet students to make sure they will be a constructive member of the class, and the class is appropriate for skill level.

Upon successful completion of 6-week and/or  8-week courses of 24 – 32 hours, students will earn .50 credits toward the LWA elective requirement for graduation. 4-week courses that meet for 16 total hours bear a credit value of .25 credits, also toward the LWA elective requirement.
