Approved Online School Programs
OSPI approves and monitors programs that offer students regular ongoing online learning. These programs may not be entirely online, and students may be expected to participate in non-online courses. The online courses may also have other requirements including in-person or site-based elements.
Online School Program Steps
Use the following steps to navigate the Online School Programs table below.
- Step 1: Find Your District
Please find your district and see if there is an available online school program. You may click on the “+” sign to see features about the program. You may click on the program name to read more about it. If you have questions about the program, please contact the program. Proceed to Step 4.
Washington law allows you to choose among online school programs, so if your district does not have an approved online school program, or if you would like to review programs in other districts before choosing, please proceed to Step 2. If you do not find an option that works, please let your district know you are interested in online learning to assist with future decision-making at the district.

Please click on the “+” sign to see features about the program. You may click on the program name to read more about it. If you have questions about the program, please contact it (an email address and phone number are provided when you click on the program name).
- Step 4: Ask Questions
Please ask the program about availability, the enrollment process, and extra-curricular activities.
- Step 5: Request Choice Transfer
If you decide on a program outside your resident district—and have confirmed the program has availability--you will need to request a Choice Transfer from your resident district. They will send this to the district that houses the online school program. Once it is approved, you may enroll in the online school program. The nonresident district is now responsible for you. This Choice Transfer will need to be renewed each year.
