Overview of the L.O.S. Program

Online classes feature live, teacher-led instruction on a DAILY basis (Monday through Thursday)--50 minutes each day for 34 weeks.

Below is an overview of the courses generally taken at each grade level. There is a great deal of flexibility, however, and our counselors can help you decide what might work best for your student.

With the additional workload of our Integrated Humanities courses(all of which are worth three-credits), students taking four courses are classified as full-time ("Diploma Track") students. 

Suggested Course of Study for Middle School (7th & 8th grade):

 INTEGRATED HUMANITIES

MATH

SCIENCE & LOGIC

LANGUAGE ELECTIVES

Integrated Humanities A or B

Pre-Algebra* Physical Sci.***

English 1* or Latin 1**

Integrated Humanities A or B

Pre-Algebra* or Algebra 1

Physical Sci.*** or Logic****

English 1* or 2* or Latin 1** or 2**

*These are middle-school courses only. If taken in high school, these classes will NOT count as a credit on the high school transcript.

**Foreign language courses taken in 7th or 8th grade will not be applied to the high school transcript. If taken in high school, these classes WILL count as a credit on the high school transcript.

***Physical Science taken in 7th or 8th grade will not be applied to the high school transcript. If taken in high school, it WILL count as a credit on the high school transcript. However, when taken during high school, Physical Science counts as an unweighted (non-honors) grade calculated on a 4.0. scale, which will lower the overall GPA. 

****We recommend Logic be taken in eighth grade, taking the place of science. Eighth grade is the "sweet spot" for taking Logic, though it's never too late! It may certainly be taken as an elective in high school.
