Welcome to Burnt River School District

We are committed to the success of all our students. 

PhotoBurnt River High School is a public charter school that provides instruction both locally and online. Our local students are provided a rigorous curriculum that allows for independent and cooperative learning with local students and online students alike. Although our online high school uses the same rigorous curriculum, it does so with new and emerging distance learning technologies to provide personalized instruction. 

Burnt River Online High School will be able to meet the needs of an assortment of 21st century students by providing them with personal individualized instruction that focuses on skills such as self-directed learning skills, innovative technology literacy, time management and personal responsibility. Unique to Burnt River Online High School is that students will be able to get face to face contact and “seat time” with our highly qualified instructors through a variety of emerging technologies.
