Class Period Hours: 7:35 am -2:15 pm


Pioneer Academy is a consortium of three schools: Pioneer Online Elementary School (1st – 5th grades), Pioneer Online Middle School (6th – 8th grades), and Pioneer High School, a fully accredited high school serving 9th – 12th grades in both a traditional campus and online options.  The elementary and middle schools are only for full-time online off campus students.


The Pioneer Academy consortium of schools prepares students for college and career readiness in an online educational environment by providing flexible, non-traditional scheduling options.  Online school students and parents/guardians are typically motivated, independent learners who can generally advocate for themselves. As the majority of the curriculum is online, students need to be at or near grade-level and possess good reading comprehension skills to be successful in an online environment.


Due to limited space, students must apply for acceptance to Pioneer Academy’s online program for elementary and middle school students.  Once capacity has been reached, additional applicants will be placed on a wait-list.  Students who attend Pioneer Academy 1-12 are expected to attend for a minimum of one year.  Students who wish to leave within the year, will need to apply for a variance back to their home zoned school.
