NCAA No Longer Accepting Coursework from 24 High Schools

Today the NCAA announced that 24 schools which use a company called K12 Inc. to provide their curriculum were no longer approved. All of the schools are nontraditional high schools, and their courses were found to not comply with the NCAA’s nontraditional course requirements. The schools are:

  • California Virtual Academy – San Joaquin
  • California Virtual Academy – San Diego
  • California Virtual Academy – Los Angeles
  • California Virtual Academy – Sutter
  • California Virtual Academy – Jamestown
  • California Virtual Academy – Kern
  • California Virtual Academy – San Mateo
  • California Virtual Academy – Kings
  • California Virtual Academy – Sonoma
  • San Francisco Flex Academy (CA)
  • Silicon Valley Flex Academy (Morgan Hill, CA)
  • California Virtual Academy – LA High
  • California Virtual Academy – Santa Ysabel
  • Colorado Virtual Academy Cova (North Glenn, CO)
  • Georgia Cyber Academy (Atlanta, GA)
  • Nevada Virtual Academy (Las Vegas, NV)
  • Ohio Virtual Academy (Maumee, OH)
  • Oklahoma Virtual Charter Academy (Nicoma Park, OK)
  • Agora Cyber Charter School (Wayne, PA)
  • South Carolina Virtual Charter (Columbia, SC)
  • Washington Virtual Academy – Monroe (Tacoma, WA)
  • Insight School of Colorado (Westminster, CO)
  • Insight School of Washington (Tacoma, WA)
  • IQ Academy Washington (Vancouver, WA)

As a result, the NCAA will stop accepting coursework from these schools starting with the 2014–15 school year. Coursework completed from Spring 2013 through Spring 2014 will undergo additional evaluation on a case-by-case basis when a prospect tries to use it for initial eligibility purposes. Coursework completed in Fall 2012 or earlier may be used without additional evaluation.

In addition to the 24 schools above, other schools affiliated with K12 Inc. remain under Extended Evaluation. This means the NCAA will continue to review coursework coming from those schools to see whether it meets the NCAA’s core course and nontraditional course requirements. Prospects with coursework from those schools must submit additional documentation no matter when the coursework was completed.
