Middle School

Grades 6-8

Online Middle School for 6th, 7th and 8th Grade

In a lot of ways, the OHDELA online middle school experience is similar to what you’d expect from a strong traditional school. OHDELA’s virtual middle school curriculum is in line with Ohio’s learning standards, which push students to apply increasingly challenging concepts and skills to class materials and projects. All 6th, 7th and 8th grade students must learn the skills detailed in their grade’s learning standards for English language arts, mathematics, science and social studies, and OHDELA middle school coursework reflects that.

What sets the OHDELA curriculum apart is the way it’s delivered; interactive activities and plenty of one-on-one time keep online learning fresh and varied. Students can complete self-directed work any time of day, and even work faster than the class’s pace. Working with the same learning programs that OHDELA high school students use, middle school students will be well-prepared for what comes next. They can also get involved with special achievement programs like the National Junior Honor Society before they make the jump to high school level courses.

Ohio’s Learning Standards for middle school students by grade include:

English and Language Arts


Social Studies


Health and Physical Education

Art and Music

Testing and Grades

The transition to middle school, grades 6-8, can be difficult. In sixth, seventh and eighth grade,  students are introduced to more challenging testing and grading. At OHDELA, we understand this, which is why we’ve designed lessons and activities that set students up for success. To keep students engaged in learning, activities in grades 6-8 incorporate hands-on computer-based activities, journal work, worksheets and technology skills. Students also participate in class discussions and interactive online programs.

Parent Involvement at OHDELA

Parents also have all the necessary resources available to help their students through middle school, including monthly progress reports and 24/7 access to grades.

It takes personal responsibility and hard work, but your student will complete the OHDELA online middle school program with the tools he or she needs to succeed in high school and afterwards.
