Summer and Part-Time Enrollement
In addition to the core courses, Ready Global Academy offers an extensive selection of electives that are both interesting and challenging. Students may also elect to take dual enrollment courses that are approved for college credit.
Because Ready Global Academy offers rolling admission, students can select individual start dates for their courses, providing the ultimate flexibility to schedule coursework around busy summer schedules that may include travel, work, and other activities. Whether students are interested in taking courses that are not offered at their high school or simply want to work ahead over the summer, Ready Global Academy provides individualized instruction that meets their specific needs.
How it Works: Summer and Part-Time Enrollments
Prior to gaining access to a course, students must meet prerequisite requirements and obtain their main school’s approval to receive Ready Global Academy credits on their transcripts. Please download the Ready Global Academy Concurrent Enrollment Form and contact your school counselor regarding the transfer of Ready Global Academy course credits. You can also call or email our Admissions Office to speak with an Admissions Coordinator. Our admissions team provides guidance for obtaining approval and ensuring the reciprocity of credits.
The student’s main school is responsible for maintaining student records and updating transcripts to reflect courses completed through Ready Global Academy. Upon request, Ready Global Academy will forward an official transcript of all courses completed through our program.
Ready Global Academy’s Credit Recovery Program allows full-time students enrolled in accredited high schools to take the credits they require to meet their school’s graduation requirements.

Extracurricular activities limited their ability to successfully complete required courses
Failing grades need to be raised by retaking courses
Illness/health led them to drop out of school for a time
Scheduling conflicts limited their ability to take required courses on time
