This summer, students in  will be able to recover lost credits without the dreaded summer school hassle, thanks to an online program that provides students with an opportunity to recover graduation credits by studying at home, on their computers at their convenience.

Through Toledo’s Phoenix Academy, students in grades nine to 12 can recover credits from home, at their convenience 24/7. Online lessons are available on the family computer  or any computer anywhere. Teacher support by e-mail is available to Phoenix Academy students seven days a week.

Suburban districts, as well as Toledo Public Schools, recognize the Phoenix Academy online curriculum. Students from neighboring communities in northwest Ohio including Ottawa Hills, Perrysburg, Rossford and Sylvania benefit from this program.

Classes are comprised of modules, which are similar to chapters in a textbook. Most begin with a pre-test, which checks knowledge of the topic. After completion of all modules in the class section, students visit a Phoenix Academy site to take a final exam. Their identity is verified by photo ID.

Students without access to a home computer can study at one of the three suburban Credit Recovery Outreach Centers or at the Academy’s downtown computer lab. Each has TPS-certified teachers available to assist students with one-on-one live support.

On the East Side, Phoenix Academy has a Credit Recovery Outreach Center in the East Toledo Family Center at 1020 Varland Ave.

Enrollment for Phoenix Academy’s online summer credit recovery program is offered Monday through Thursday June 8–11 from 9 a.m. to noon. Fees are $100 per semester credit for Toledo Public School students and $125 per credit for non-TPS students. The program begins Monday, June 15.

Complete information is available at (click on Credit Recovery Program) or call 419-720-4510.

Phoenix Academy’s Online Credit Recovery Program allows high school students to earn credits toward graduation while studying at home.
