The MCPS Online Academy is our completely online K-12 school dedicated to supporting our staff and students who cannot return to face to face learning due to the COVID-19 outbreak. The MCPS Online Academy will be available to students while we are in Phase 0 - 2 of our phased reopening plan. The Online Academy may stay open to certain students who qualify due to significant health issues once we reach Phase 3 of our reopening plan.
K-12 students will be taught by MCPS educators, however, they may not be a teacher who is a member of your student’s home school.
The MCPS Online Academy will be a trusting learning environment for students and staff, with a focus on connecting ourselves deeply in our learning community even while socially distanced and online.
Once classes start, we will follow the same academic schedule as all MCPS elementary, middle and high schools with regard to holidays, professional days, parent teacher conferences, etc.
In the MOA, all students will be assigned an MCPS teacher(s) certified in that content area and grade level. Please see this page to understand more about teacher, students and parent roles in the MOA.
As of Wednesday, September 9, 2020 all MCPS meals will be provided free of charge to all students. These meals are also available to all youth in the community under 18 years of age. Meals will be free through December 31, 2020.
