SUNNYSIDE Online Success Academy - A tech-savvy school districtOUR SCHOOL

The Online Success Academy ​was designed to address the needs of students who learn best in non-traditional ways, need more time with course content, or choose not to attend regular school. We believe all students deserve a first-rate education, and feel that online programs provide students with a full range of learning experiences.

The curriculum at Sunnyside Online Success Academy is based on the Arizona State Standards and students must demonstrate knowledge of the standards in order to qualify for credit in each course. Continuous enrollment depends on both adequate progress and academic success. To this end, highly qualified teachers are assigned to students to provide timely and expert support.
