Lodi Unified Digital Academy


Students who are motivated to work independently and who have had success in the current Distance Learning Model will thrive in the Lodi Unified Digital Academy.

About the Digital Academy

The Digital Academy is a 100 percent online learning program. It includes both synchronous and asynchronous learning and allows students to engage in a learning process similar to an in-person daily schedule, but in a remote setting.   

The content of the Digital Academy is aligned to grade level standards and will provide instruction that is at a level of quality and intellectual challenge substantially equivalent to in-person instruction. Instruction will be provided to students by Lodi USD teachers using Lodi USD adopted curriculum.

The Digital Academy is offered under the umbrella of the District's independent study program. Grades K-6 are offered under the Valley Robotics Academy and grades 7-12 are offered under the Independence School. However, the Digital Academy is a separate program.

The Digital Academy includes, but is not be limited to:

  • Interactions, instruction, and check-ins between teachers and students through the use of computer or communications technology.
  • Video or audio instruction in which the primary mode of communication between the student and teacher is online interaction, instructional television, video, telecourses, or other instruction that relies on computer or communications technology.
  • The use of print materials incorporating assignments that are the subject of written or oral feedback.
  • The use of hands on materials, as appropriate.

7-12 grade students remain connected to their neighborhood school and can participate in school activities. Seniors graduate from their neighborhood school.
