JAA-Online Tuition-Free Charter School doesn’t mean alone, JAA-Online Tuition-Free Charter School means Community!

When you join JAA-Online Tuition-Free Charter School you join the JAA family. Before classes ever begin you’ll have an orientation where your family will meet our staff and we get to know you. Our flexible at home learning is enriched by interaction with teachers and other scholars during live class sessions and study groups. Scholars build relationship with mentors during office hours and ongoing support. 

Online Scholars enrolled in our tuition-free charter option enjoy the option of participating in after-school enrichments, sports, social activities, and field trips, at their associated in-person campus.

In addition to the community built with Online scholars and mentors, charter scholars have the flexibility and time in their days to build relationships with friends and family where they live by organizing their own enrichments, meet ups, and activities.


Weekly online virtual enrichment classes are offered during the school day to Online scholars for all grades. Classes run in 5-week sessions twice during the fall semester and twice during the spring semester. Enrichment activities include classes on art, musical instruments, poetry writing, STEM science, fiber arts (knitting, Crochet), cooking for college and much more. Families can sign up for enrichment classes at the beginning of the year using the Canvas Catalog system and their scholars email address.

Field Trips

Making learning come alive through hands on experiences is an essential component of John Adams Academy’s Online program. A number of field trips are organized throughout the school year. At the beginning of each school year, families can sign up for the field trips they’d like to attend using the Canvas catalog system and their scholars email address. Field trip costs are covered for scholars and one parent/guardian per trip by the Academy. Additional siblings not enrolled in the online program and guardians may attend if space is available and at the expense of the family. Field trips are aligned with the academy science, history, and literature curriculum. Field trips are provided across multiple grades so families with multiple scholars can easily attend.
