Why Should You Choose Oakwood?

Our non-traditional program is fine tuned for students who need a second chance or an alternative to the traditional high school model. Oakwood Digital Academy provides a true alternative in instructional format by creating a blended learning environment that allows students to work at their own pace.  The instructional format blends on-line learning with small group instruction and one-to-one tutoring allowing the teachers at the Digital Academy to create Learning Plans that are customize to the specific needs of each learner. Students are provided an opportunity to select a class schedule which will accommodate their work schedule or family commitments. Students may enroll in one of three sessions offered throughout the day at Oakwood Digital Academy. The schedule includes three-hour morning, midday and afternoon sessions which meet five days per week. For night school information, please click the night school link.

Each student will receive an Individualized Learning Program based on their academic needs. The individualized plan and computer-assisted personalized instruction allow students the freedom to work at their own pace and, in many cases, accelerate their learning. This instruction is complemented by teacher-led extended learning activities and small group instruction to help students apply their knowledge. The academic program is aligned to the Georgia Performance Standards, meets requirements for high school graduation in Georgia and is accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools, the organization that accredits Georgia schools.

A post-secondary transition coach is provided to assist students with job placement, job shadowing, internships, and mentoring opportunities. In addition, service learning opportunities will give students the opportunity to participate in meaningful community service projects and partnerships with Chattahoochee Technical College, and/or other institutions will provide post-secondary opportunities to students who wish to pursue them.
