Edgenuity, a leading provider of online and blended learning solutions, announced today that it is accepting second semester enrollments for courses that have been reviewed by the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) and found to meet its requirements for high school student-athletes. Through Edgenuity’s Instructional Services program, districts and schools can now enroll student-athletes in Edgenuity’s online courses to help them fulfill their academic requirements and drive positive academic outcomes while accommodating each student-athlete’s training and travel needs.

“Edgenuity’s individualized, student-centered learning experience and virtual instructors can be used by student-athletes to ensure they are prepared with the knowledge and skills they need when they enter college,” said Sari Factor, CEO of Edgenuity. “Edgenuity’s engaging platform is designed to help students become active participants in their own education and prepare them to be self-directed, lifelong learners who are ready to succeed in college.”

Edgenuity courses are NCAA approved when taught by an Edgenuity Instructional Services teacher. Instructional Services provides a state-certified teacher who interacts with students via web conferencing, virtual whiteboard, email, phone, and chat to provide direct instruction and support. Districts and schools are also able to offer NCAA-eligible online courses using Edgenuity’s curriculum without utilizing Edgenuity’s instructional services. However, they need to contact the NCAA to submit documentation describing their implementation model and showing how it meets NCAA’s requirements.

Edgenuity continues to work with NCAA and has been awarded “extended evaluation” status. This indicates that NCAA has completed a thorough review of Edgenuity’s curriculum and implementation model, and has found that it meets their guidelines for online courses. As part of the extended evaluation, NCAA continues to monitor coursework from actual student athletes enrolled in online courses through Edgenuity Instructional Services.
