  • How do I sign up for a course?
    Signing up for a class is a simple process: 1) Go to the course catalog and find the section with the grade range your student will be in. 2) Once you and your student have decided to sign up for a class you can hit the sign up button and fill in the required information. If you are trying to sign up for a class that is already full, a message will appear telling you that the class is no longer accepting students. We do offer a waitlist option for each class. To sign up for the waitlist, you can follow the waitlist option next to the course description.
  • Can middle school students take high school courses?
    At TNW our goal is to provide exciting and appropriate course opportunities for all our students. Please note that our high school courses give priority registration to students in 9th-12 grade so that these students have the opportunity to meet all high school credit requirements. Once high school students have registered, we then open the course registration to our middle school students, provided there are remaining seats. Please note, however, that for a middle school student to register for a high school-level class, we require the approval from their educational facilitator, TOR, and parents. In addition to this approval there may be a required screening assessment for middle schoolers seeking to register for high school courses in certain content areas (i.e an 8th grader trying to register for a calculus class). This policy serves to guarantee that each student is appropriately challenged and supported in their educational journey with us.
  • What are the different class formats?
    Online Synchronous: Online Synchronous Classes take place with a live instructor via Zoom. Students must have access to the internet and login to the zoom call at the listed time. In Person: Classes listed as In Person will take place at one of our physical learning center addresses. Students must be able to come in person to the listed location to attend these classes. Hybrid: Hybrid courses are courses that take place both at a physical learning center and via Zoom at the same time. Students can pick to attend either way but must be available during the listed time. Online Asynchronous: Asynchronous classes are classes that are "go at your own speed". These courses will send work out via email and students do not need to attend a live or virtual meeting to take part in these courses.
  • How do I disenroll from a course prior to the start date?
    If you have signed up for a class that you no longer wish to take, you can go into your email and find the google form response that was sent to you after registering. You will click on "edit form" and change the first question (Are you enrolling your student in this course) from yes to no.
  • What if the class we want is full?
    To better support the learning of our students, we strive to keep our class sizes small. We do offer a waitlist option that can be found in the course description. If a spot becomes available in the class, students will be contacted in the order that they signed up.
  • Who do I contact if there is an issue with the sign up or website?
    Please email Kori at with any course sign up issues, and be sure to add a relevant subject line to the email.
