  • Schedule your weekly meeting with your mentor.
  • Go back to review the module or to work on additional assignments.

Broady Academy High School Program

The Broady High School first opened its virtual doors in August 2009 to meet the needs of local students struggling to finish high school. Broady Academy high school has always put students first and integrated Christian virtues through its staff and students.  

Some people may downplay the value of a high school diploma, but at Broady Academy, we understand the importance of this step in the future of young learners as well as adults. We are committed to the continuous improvement of our educational content and delivery to better prepare our students for integration in our fast paced, technology driven world.

While all others are lowering the required credits to graduate, Broady Academy High School has increased those requirements in keeping with our mission to engage and develop students in an innovative, challenging, individualized, and career oriented learning environment that prepares graduates to thrive as tomorrow’s leaders, workers, and citizens in an ever changing, technology rich, and global society.

We know that that requiring learners to create substantial change in their community, state, or nation, requires that we guide them along the way because in the real world, our challenge is to create, implement, and sustain real change for our communities.
