Hybrid Program Information and FAQ

LISA Academy Arkansas Hybrid School was founded in 2021 to serve students K-12 across Arkansas. The LISA Hybrid School incorporates a combination of virtual instruction and onsite intervention/enrichment.  Students’ academic instruction will be provided using a nationally recognized online curriculum, supported by LISA Academy teachers and administration.



Students enrolled in this school will be required to attend onsite for approximately a half-day at least every other week at one of our Campus Learning Centers in Rogers, Little Rock, or Jonesboro for interaction with Hybrid School programs and activities.


The onsite component will include intervention/enrichment in core subjects as well as the opportunity to participate in extracurricular activities, such as clubs and sports. In addition, students will attend onsite for required testing several times each year.  Students will be equipped with all needed educational technology and materials.
