Montana launches free online courses for high schoolers

June 14, 2010View for printing

While many high school students in Great Falls enrolled in summer school courses online this year, a new state program is ramping up efforts to get students enrolled in online high school courses this fall — for free.

Montana's Digital Academy http://www.montanadigitalacademy.org/ based at the University of Montana in Missoula is planning to offer 45 online high school courses this fall. This is the first year of the state-funded program.

"There have been other efforts (before)," said Bob Currie, director of the Digital Academy. "But it wasn't statewide. This is really the first statewide program."
