Welcome to Tacoma Online
a new K-12 school in the Tacoma Public School District for 2021-2022 and beyond
While the Tacoma Online name has been around for a while, it became the home for Tacoma’s innovative pandemic response program during the 2020-2021 school year where it offered over 4,000 Tacoma students in grades K-12 a safe and completely online educational opportunity. Based on the demonstrated success of the program, Tacoma Schools is pleased to launch the next version of Tacoma Online. Beginning in the 2021-2022 school year, Tacoma Online will be a standalone school and we are pleased to open our enrollment.
Anyone – Anywhere – Anytime
Tacoma Online is open to all students in the Tacoma Public School District and can also enroll a small percentage of students from outside of the district. The school is designed to allow students to work on schoolwork on their own schedule and from any location where they can get online. We have competitive athletes with daytime training schedules who do school at night. We have early-risers who complete all of their schoolwork before noon. Whatever your needs, Tacoma Online offers the flexibility to support your success.
Enrolling at Tacoma Online
Tacoma Online will accept enrollment for all grades K-12 for the 2021-2022 school year beginning in February 2021. Students enrolling in Tacoma Online will take all of their classes at Tacoma Online and cannot split enrollment with another TPS school, though Tacoma Online will offer the Running Start Program in partnership with Tacoma Community College.
For many students with special needs and Individualized Education Plans, Tacoma Online is a perfect fit. Tacoma Online’s staff includes certified special education teachers who partner with general education teachers to customize learning to meet each student where they are.
Thank you for exploring the Tacoma Online school for your student for the 2021-2022 school year. We're excited to partner with you as we strive to provide an enriching and rigorous school experience.
