Frequently Asked Questions

What do I need to get started?

 

GETTING STARTED

Check the current dates for to see when classes begin and end. All coursework must be submitted prior to the last deadline. Students will access their online course through Canvas LMS at centergrove.instructure.com on the first day of the course. If you are planning to be on vacation or away from wi-fi for more than a few days, it’s important you communicate with your instructor in advance and work ahead to avoid missing any deadline requirements. Global Campus students are expected to log in at least three times each week.

Our courses are designed for students to have increased flexibility. However, it’s important you meet the targeted deadlines as outlined by your course instructor. Online course grades through Global Campus are handled in the same manner as face-to-face courses at Center Grove High School. Failure to complete assignments by the specified course dates will impact your grades. The final grade received in the Global Campus course will be documented on your transcript; therefore, it’s important you remain committed to their studies over the summer. Finally, some of our courses do require an on-site final exam. Your course instructor will provide this information closer to the launch of the course.

 

ORIENTATION

To help you be successful online, you and your parents are encouraged to attend our Global Campus orientation that will be scheduled in late May before summer school begins. Many of our online course instructors will be available that evening so you can ask specific course questions at that time. If you are new to using Canvas, please navigate through the Getting Started with Canvas tutorial.

 

TECHNOLOGY REQUIREMENTS

All Global Campus students are expected to use and frequently check their Center Grove gmail accounts for Global Campus communications. Some course activities may require students still have access to a computer/laptop. Access to ongoing and reliable high-speed wi-fi is a must for an online course. Students will need to either have wi-fi at home, or plan to study at a location with free wi-fi available. Additional technology requirements can be found in our FAQs under “Technology.”
