Mission Statement

We offer engaging alternatives to brick-and-mortar settings, and strive to help our valued students acquire the academic knowledge and personal skills to become productive citizens in our community. We thank you for choosing us to help with your education.

Peninsula Internet Academy Overview

Peninsula Internet Academy (PIA) works collaboratively with our district’s high schools to provide online alternatives to traditional education for 9th-12th graders.

Our online learning program uses the OSPI accredited provider Fuel Education for the majority of its content and curriculum. Our curriculum is aligned to district and state standards, and has been approved by our district’s Instructional Advisory Committee.

We operate on the quarter system, and our full-time students take 2-3 classes every term.  Students are enrolled in the Peninsula Internet Academy under the umbrella of the district's alternative high school, Henderson Bay.

Students may work at their own pace, as long as they are making adequate monthly progress towards their course completion goals.  Students are required to ZOOM in each week with our learning specialist for a progress check, and are required to email each teacher on a weekly basis.  

We are here to support you!  Students seeking assistance may make an appointment to visit our offices for one-on-one help. In addition, students can speak with their content area teachers and the Online Learning Specialist by: phone, email, or website messaging. Although responses may not be immediate, we offer technical and course support via email until 9:00 on weeknights.

Students are able to integrate Running Start and Skill Center classes with their online learning plans. Extra curricular activities are also accessible to our students at their neighborhood school.  This includes, athletics, dances and clubs, as well as blending academic programs with music, drama, and hands-on technical classes.
