Select Your Courses

Ready to sign up for classes?

This page is for parents of students who have already applied and been accepted to LAU. If you have not yet applied, follow the instructions on this page for new students or this page for returning students. Once your student has been accepted, you can select their courses.

Things to Know Before Selecting Courses

Students are required to take at least four classes for Middle School (minimum 2 Core classes) and five classes for High School (minimum 3 Core Classes) from LAU.

Course selection can include Innovative Learning Center (ILC), Independent Study, Funded Independent Course, Outdoor Adventures (OA), or online classes. 

Students may choose up to two different In-Person Learning course types shown below (per semester):

  • Innovative Learning Center
  • Funded Independent Course
  • Outdoor Adventures

Note: ILC participation requires that students enroll and participate in the full day of classes.

LAU will cover the cost for all eligible LAU students to attend Elevation one time per school year. See eligibility requirements here.

Registration Timelines

Course registration for Fall and Winter semesters opens Monday of the first week of April for the upcoming school year. 

Students accepted to LAU must register for classes according to the deadlines outlined in the table below. 

Date Accepted to LAU Deadline to Register
During Open Enrollment (January) to the first day of Fall registration 14 days from open of Fall registration
First day of Fall registration to June 30 14 days from date of acceptance
July 1 to July 31 7 days from date of acceptance
August 1 or later 48 hours from date of acceptance

Students that are not registered within the required time frame will be at risk of losing their spot at LAU. Email reminders for class registration will be sent to students after they have been admitted to LAU.

Steps to Register

At LAU, parents get to choose the days/times of courses for which their children register. The course selection process is simple. Just follow these steps:

  1. Review our recommended course paths for middle school or high school. Create a list of the courses your student needs to take in the Fall and Winter semesters.
  2. Consult the live course schedules for middle school or high school. Make a list of your preferred live class meeting times.
  3. Log into SIS.
  4. In SIS, under My Students > Registration, find the courses you need, select your preferred class meeting times, and complete the registration process. You can ignore the tuition prices unless you’re planning to self-pay for a course (e.g. those that LAU doesn’t pay for, like summer classes or a second Elevation session).

You can view specific middle school and high school course descriptions on the Williamsburg Learning website.

Please email our academic counselor, Kate Chaney, if you have questions or need help creating your student’s perfect schedule.
