Online Academy

Note: Barker Creek Online Academy is separate from the Central Kitsap Virtual Academy (CKVA) created for the 2020-21 school year. For more information about CKVA, please visit the CKVA Website.


Your child can take online classes as an alternative to learning in a traditional classroom setting. Your child can attend a full school day, or combine online work with other courses at Barker Creek Community School. The online program allows your child to work at home with support from a teacher at Barker Creek. We partner with Pearson Education company, which provides high quality curriculum through its Connexus online program.  

Grades 9–12

Students who are eligible for high school credit and live in our attendance area can take our Online Academy classes. Our teachers instruct classes, so you can meet them face-to-face. Space is limited to 40 students. We give priority to full-time students. Classes are available online 24/7.

Face-to-face Meetings

Our online students must meet for one hour each week with an instructor. They meet at Barker Creek Community School, 1400 NE McWilliams Road, Bremerton, Wash. 98311. You must provide your own transportation. Each month, students and parents can attend progress meetings.

Is it right for you?

Online classes are an excellent option for students who can’t attend school on a daily basis. It’s best for students who can take charge of their learning, stay on task online and manage their time well. We expect students to log in daily and complete work each week.
