Digital Knights

Digital Knights
More and more students each year are choosing to attend a digital school rather than the traditional “brick and mortar” school for their K-12 school coursework. Digital schools offer maximum flexibility for students because courses are available 24 hours a day. Sometimes, digital schools become the option of choice for students who have not been successful in a traditional environment for a variety of reasons.

Nordonia Hills City Schools now has a digital academy, Ohio Virtual Academy, Ohio Connection Academy and others.

Digital Knights Options

Three options are available for current Nordonia students in the Digital Knights program.

Elective Courses

While Nordonia High School has a wide offering of courses, we recognize that a student may want to take a course that is not offered, or be bound by a scheduling conflict.  The Digital Knights program works with several different vendors to offer a seemingly endless number of courses in all disciplines.  Students are responsible for all fees associated with these courses.

Note:  Elective courses price will vary by vendor, please contact Mr. Witschey for current pricing.

Credit Recovery

In the event that a Nordonia High School student has failed a course, the Digital Knights can provide an opportunity for those credits to be recovered though an online curriculum.  Students are responsible for all fees associated with these courses.
