Yuma Online Distance Academy (YODA) is an Internet instructional program provided through Yuma Union High School District (YUHSD.) Courses are available from 9th through 12th grade high school students, and a student may earn a high school diploma through one of our traditional high schools (Cibola, Gila Ridge, Kofa, San Luis, Somerton, and Yuma High School) or at Vista High School upon successful completion.

What is “Distance Learning"?
Distance learning is a state-of-the-art concept in education. Students are able to complete their high school coursework online, and their online instructors stay in regular contact with them to promote success.  The curriculum is interactive, flexible, and rigorous. YODA courses are designed by certified teachers and are aligned to state and national standards.

Course Information
A certified teacher is the instructor for each YODA course. Students are free to work at their own pace following a lesson checklist to guide them successfully in course completion. YODA students experience a multitude of activities with a mixture of multimedia, videos, online quizzes, and downloadable assignments. Student progress may be monitored 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

Why Distance Learning?
YODA welcomes back into school those students who may have stopped attending a traditional high school, and it also offers currently enrolled students the opportunity to take extra classes. YODA is a flexible and personalized way to earn a high school diploma, where students can work at their own pace and can learn from anywhere via online technology. Please note: students seeking enrollment in YODA may only enroll via their home campus/the campus in which they live within attendance boundaries.
