Program Overview

Is the iAcademy right for you? 

  • Are you homeschooled or attend a private school, but you need more support with the challenging high school curriculum?
  • Would you benefit from a blended schedule that provides flexibility to meet your needs?
  • Is it sometimes difficult for you to attend a high school that meets daily on a regular schedule?  (ex. you are involved in competitive sports and travel, have a child to care for, you have an illness, etc.) 
  • Are you self-motivated, committed to academic success, and able to monitor your own progress? 
  • Do you have the proper support at home to help you be successful?  


Students can choose from a variety of options, including: 

  • 100% virtual learning – all classes are taken online, from anywhere, through the North Carolina Virtual Public School (NCVPS) or Virtual ISS. 
  • Blended schedule – students can build a course load that meets their needs, using a mix of online classes and traditional or home school classes. 
  • Home school supplement – credits from licensed NC home schools transfer seamlessly to allow students to enroll in a minimum of two courses (either online or traditional) to supplement the classes they have already taken. 
  • Long-term medical leave - Students who are confined to their home or hospital may stay on track by completing their coursework online. 


How does it work?

  • Students must enroll in a minimum of 2 courses per semester to be considered full-time, and a total of 3 courses to be eligible to participate in high school athletics. 
  • iAcademy can supplement the home school curriculum, or replace it entirely.
  • Students have the choice of whether to graduate from their home school program, or to earn a high school diploma from Iredell-Statesville Schools. 
  • Internet access is provided only at the iAcademy site in Troutman, NC.
