The Achievement Zone's Online Learning

The Achievement Zone will be offering online classes for the Fall Semester. 

There will be two optional start dates: August 17, 2020 and September 14, 2020. Classes run until December 18, 2020

TAZ Online will be offering two class choices every hour. Participants do not need to sign up for the entire day. They can select as many or as few of the options as they desire. When making your class selections, please be aware of the participant's potential fatigue from sitting at the computer for too long. We want TAZ Online to be an enjoyable experience and not to be overtaxing. TAZ Online will take place via ZOOM.

  2. Complete the Interest Selection Survey (button in the right side bar of this webpage)
