About HSLDA Online Academy

Who We Are

HSLDA and Patrick Henry College launched the Academy in 2009 as a service to homeschool and private school families looking for ways to supplement their students’ high school education.

Today, the Academy operates as a division of HSLDA dedicated to providing quality Christian online courses to students everywhere.

Our main office is located in Northern Virginia, and we have the pleasure to work with an exceptional team of teachers who work remotely across the United States. 

Your student will get to join our virtual campus and meet fellow Christian high schoolers from all 50 US states and from several countries around the world!
