About Orange Lutheran Online

A leader in Christian online education since 2004, Orange Lutheran Online (OLO) brings the Orange Lutheran experience and incredible flexibility to students on campus and worldwide. With over 50 courses to choose from in a wide variety of disciplines, including core courses that are NCAA and UC-approved as well as honors and Advanced Placement (AP) courses, OLO makes obtaining a high school diploma more convenient than ever before.

Students may enroll for a single course, a combination of online and on-campus classes, or as a full-time online student. Online summer courses are also available. Our courses are designed to meet the highest national standards for quality online courses and our online instructors are held to the same high expectations as our on-campus instructors. All OLO courses mirror the academic structure and teaching methods of traditional classroom learning, but with a convenient and flexible format.

An Orange Lutheran High School diploma is attainable to a prospective student from anywhere in the world. A student can choose to earn all their high school credits through our online course options. A full-time online student takes three or four courses at a time since OLO classes are accelerated 8-week semesters. A student completes a yearlong course in 16 weeks, so a typical student completes three courses in the fall term and three courses in the spring. We also offer several classes in a 16-week semester format.

Orange Lutheran Online runs two terms during the academic school year (fall and spring) and one summer term. Each term is comprised of two semesters, each semester lasting eight weeks. Click here for a sample four-year plan.

Tuition for a full-time online student is $475 per semester course. Full-Time Online offers a completely online schedule for students with special approved circumstances or who are outside of a 75-mile radius from Orange Lutheran’s campus.

Blended students take a blend of online classes (through Orange Lutheran Online) and on-campus classes. Blended 4 students take 3-4 on-campus classes and the rest of their classes online. Blended 2 students take 2 on-campus classes and the rest of their classes online. Blended 1 students can take up to 1 on-campus class and the rest of their classes online. These options provide families a lower tuition rate (click here for tuition information). To view what is offered with each Blended option click here for the Expanded Learning Offerings.

Generally, Single Course Students take classes for enrichment or for remediation. Tuition for Single Course Students is $475 per semester course.

All courses are offered during an eight-week summer session. Tuition is $475 per semester course, payable prior to the start of the session.

Online dual credit classes offer students an opportunity to earn college credit while demonstrating the pursuit of a passion outside of the confines of the master bell schedule. Electives are the main focus of these selections. Three or four college credits can be earned over a 15-week semester or 7-week semester, based on specific school standards, as well as a year of high school elective credit. The college credit is directly applicable to Concordia University Wisconsin and Grand Canyon University and may be transferrable to other colleges.
