Q - How often will students have to attend onsite at a Learning Center and what will that involve?

A - Students will be required to spend approximately one half-day at a Learning Center every other week for academic intervention and enrichment, and to meet face-to-face with teachers. Additionally, students will be required to attend onsite for required testing 3-4 times per year. Students will be encouraged to attend more frequently and to participate in extracurricular clubs and other activities on campus.

Q - What are the residency requirements for attending the school? 

A -The only residency requirement for enrollment in the school is proof of Arkansas residency.


Q - How much does it cost to attend? 

A -As public charter schools, LISA Academy schools do not charge any tuition for attending. 

Q - Are students required to take admission tests to be admitted? 

A - There is no testing required to qualify for attendance. LISA Academy Schools are open enrollment public charter schools, and as such allow any student to attend as long as they are Arkansas residents.  If the number of applicants exceeds the number of slots available, a random lottery is used to select students who will be offered admission.


Q - Will students be allowed to participate in sports and extracurricular activities? 

A - Students enrolled in the hybrid school will be allowed to participate in extracurricular activities that are available at the Learning Center, along with onsite students.


Q - Can current  LISA Academy students attend the new Hybrid School?
A - Current LISA Academy students will have three options for the 2021-22 school year:
  • Continue full on-site education at your current LISA Academy school. If your student is enrolled at a LISA Academy school now, you do not need to take any action to continue with their current enrollment status.
  • Participate in virtual learning through your current LISA Academy campus. Your student’s school will contact you soon regarding your choice of onsite or virtual learning for NEXT SCHOOL YEAR ONLY.  This option is available due to the ongoing pandemic and is not considered a long-term choice.
  • Apply to enroll in the new LISA Academy Arkansas Hybrid School (K-12). Enrollment in this school is intended to be a long-term enrollment for future years.  To enroll in the hybrid school, students will need to apply and go through a lottery to be selected for the new school.
