Welcome to Ignite! Online Academy! We are excited to virtually open our doors to Durham students beginning in the 2021-22 school year. Ignite! offers a comprehensive home-based virtual learning experience for families who need flexibility, yet desire a rigorous educational environment that prepares students for the future.
Ignite! Online Academy is DPS’s first full-time virtual and blended school serving students in grades K-12. For students who thrive outside of the traditional classroom setting, Ignite! is the ideal option to continue growing academically. Through instruction delivered by specially trained Durham Public Schools teachers, Ignite! students will enjoy personalized learning and a connected community. Ignite! will empower your learner to own their education and engage when, where, and how they learn best. Ignite! is also a great fit for families currently homeschooling who would benefit from access to high-quality curriculum materials and software products purchased by DPS, all free of charge.
