Thank you for your interest in Linfield Christian Online (LCO)
The vision of LCO is to provide 21st Century opportunities that support academic enrichment and seek to challenge students in critical thinking, preparing them for success in a collegiate setting.
What We Offer
LCO provides courses that run year-round in either individually paced or 8-16 week sessions. Courses include those that come from a provider or are taught by a Linfield faculty member, and are included on the student’s transcript and factored into the GPA.View Our Course List
Required for all Freshmen
Health is now taught online and is a requirement for all entering Freshmen. It is part of the tuition, and students must complete the one semester course prior to entering sophomore year. Linfield’s purpose in offering Health online is three-fold: 1) assure continuity across the curriculum with content, 2) promote 21st century skills, and 3) provide online experience for students in preparation for college.
Linfield offers five 9-week sessions: two summer, one fall, and two spring.Register for Health
How Do I Know if Online is a Good Fit for Me?
It is important that students and parents consider the following factors when deciding to take an online class:
- The online class environment promotes independent learning and will require students to be self-motivated and mature as they will be responsible for their progress.
- While the format of the online classes is non-traditional and flexible, students should expect to be challenged and have nightly and/or weekly homework, tests, projects, or papers. In order to be successful, students must be disciplined to follow the designed scope and sequence of the course.
- Some courses are provided by a partner institution, and each partnering institution has policies and procedures for the completion of online work, grading, tests, late work, and other educational practices; these do not necessarily follow the same policies and procedures as Linfield Christian High School. Therefore, parents and students need to understand and agree to follow the institutions’ designed curriculum and policies.
- Regarding non-Linfield courses: While LCO will facilitate enrollment into these courses and will recognize this coursework on a student’s transcript, students and parents will primarily be dealing with the online instructor and partnering institution. It is critical to understand the expectations for communication and also realize that online education is different from a traditional classroom experience. The majority of communication will occur electronically, so students and parents need to understand and follow the procedures designed by the partnering institution to insure success.
- For courses that are owned and/or taught by Linfield and its faculty, the Linfield Parent/Student Handbook policies apply. Students have some face-to-face access with faculty; however, course content is delivered online, and it is equivalent in expectations and rigor to the on-campus alternative.
First Steps and Enrollment
The first step in enrolling in an online class is to meet with the College Counselor assigned to you. Once the online class is integrated into the four-year plan and is approved, a link will be provided for registration and payment.
