No. There is nothing in Ohio law that allows a person to be a part-time high school student. Promise Academy can help most students find a way to be successful, regardless of their individual circumstances.
Does Promise Academy distribute laptop computers to students?
Sometimes. Promise Academy issued laptop computers to students during the pandemic.

If we determine that working remotely (in addition to attending regularly) is right for you, Promise Academy will issue you a laptop computer.
