Online Learning Academy Credit Recovery

  • The Online Learning Academy (OLA) credit recovery program is a full semester (18-week) program consisting of:

    • Online credit recovery course content allows students to "test out" units/lessons of which they have achieved mastery.

    • A teacher of record from the Nassau BOCES Virtual Teacher of Record Team

    • Ongoing progress monitoring by OLA mentors, including follow-up and support in tandem with district-based mentors

    • Progress reports and grade reporting


    Registration Process:

    • Registration begins when a student and their guidance counselor determine if the student is a good candidate for taking online courses.  Learn more about what makes  "Good Candidate for Taking Online Classes" here.
    • Once student candidacy is determined, the guidance counselor and student should work together to select which courses they would like to take by viewing our course catalog.    
    • From here, they will need to contact their 'District Mentor' to complete enrollment.  Learn more about who your District Mentor is here.
