Distance Learning Academy

Providing students and families the opportunity to learn and grow with us in a fully online Distance Learning Academy.

Students in the White Bear Lake Area Schools Distance Learning Academy attend school online each day and work with their teachers to complete learning activities specifically designed for their grade level. Students learn the same concepts and curriculum as their in-school counterparts, but the delivery is adapted to help students succeed in an online environment.
 
The WBLAS Distance Learning Academy is taught by WBLAS teachers, aligned with WBLAS curriculum and Minnesota state standards and designed to meet the same high levels of academic rigor present in traditional in-person school.
