Course Offerings for Middle School students (Grades 6-8) 

QDA offers courses from a wide variety of curriculum providers. Listed below are our providers that offer courses for grades 6-8.

  • Apex Learning

    APEX Learning provides comprehensive, standards-based online courses that help schools successfully engage all students in rigorous coursework and prepare them for high school graduation and beyond.

    With the Apex Learning digital curriculum, teachers are able to more effectively differentiate instruction and spend more time working one-on-one with students to address individual needs. Multimedia instructional content motivates and engages students, provides multiple representations of concepts, and addresses different learning styles. The ability to move at their own pace allows students to take as much — or as little — time as they need to master the material. The Apex Learning digital curriculum supports success for all students, from those not prepared for grade-level academic challenges to those capable of advanced coursework.

    Apex Learning partners with school districts to provide solutions tailored to meet their specific educational objectives. Experienced education consultants work with districts to design and implement customized programs. Districts are successfully using Apex Learning digital curriculum to meet needs ranging from credit recovery to original credit, from building foundational skills to creating opportunities for advanced coursework, and from distance learning to classroom-based programs.

  • BYU

    The BYU Independent Study High School Program is accredited by the Northwest Accreditation Commission (NWAC) and by the Distance Education and Training Council (DETC).

    Courses can be taken through a paper/pencil version or an online version. The student studies the materials, submits lessons, takes a final exam with a proctor or at a testing center, and receives a course grade that can be transferred to the school of their choice. BYU Courses can be taken by anyone in the world from anywhere! 

    How does it work?

    Students register for a course online and are mailed course materials the same day. The course is ready to begin immediately. After submitting all of the course assignments, students take a final exam with a certified proctor or testing center in their area. 

    • After lessons and exams have been completed, a course completion notice or transcript will be sent to the educational institution the student has designated. 
    • It is recommended that students check with their school before enrolling in a BYU Independent Study course.
