Welcome to Boardman’s virtual learning option: the Spartan Online Academy.  We are excited to offer this learning alternative for our students and families who believe they will thrive in a self-paced learning environment supported by our Boardman teachers.

A committee of administrators, online teachers, and Boardman parents  spent months researching and vetting various online platforms.  As a result of that effort, we chose a learning program that we feel will be most beneficial to our students in grades 7-12.  The rigors of the program are further explained in the Student Handbook and we strongly encourage parents considering this option to read the handbook thoroughly. 

This type of learning is not ideal for all students.  It comes with unique opportunities but also requires a lot of responsibility on behalf of the student, as well as their parent/guardian. Some of the key  benefits of our online program include the following:

  • Ability to participate in our in-person music programs 

  • Ability to participate in our in-person after-school extracurricular activities

  • Ability to participate in Boardman athletics. 

  • Opportunity to graduate with a  Boardman High School Diploma.

On behalf of the Boardman Local School District, I am delighted to welcome you to the Boardman Spartan community. We look forward to developing a strong partnership with you during your child’s time here in Boardman.
