How to Enroll & Register for Courses
Some Things to Know First
Leadership Academy of Colorado (LACO) is a state-approved multi-district online school available to students statewide in Colorado. To qualify for free tuition in our online middle school and online high school programs, students must take 4 or more classes per semester and LACO must be their only state-funded curriculum provider.
If your student would prefer to take 2-3 classes, you can enroll in Williamsburg’s Homeschool Enrichment (HSE) program through Colorado Education reEnvisioned (a BOCES). However, there are fewer benefits in the HSE program for students.

To start, review our recommended course paths and live course schedules for middle and high school. Create a list of courses your student will take and their preferred class times. If your child is new to Williamsburg, we recommend doing this step with an advisor.

Then, back in SIS under My Students, find your student’s tab and click Registration. Select their desired courses and class times, and follow the prompts to complete the registration process.
- Note: Be sure to select only courses that show “Covered by LACO” under “Tuition Per Semester” to ensure that 100% of your child’s tuition is covered.
We suggest registering for both the fall and winter semesters simultaneously to ensure you get the best schedule for your student. If needed, you can adjust your child’s courses and schedule within the first 28 days of each semester.

Enroll Your Student Full-time for Maximum Benefits
Results show that full-time students who enroll in the Williamsburg program (four or more courses) get higher grades, develop vital time management skills, and make deeper social connections with their peers and mentors. They outperform their peers on ACT/SAT exams and are better equipped for life as adults after graduation.
