Online Education Without Walls or International Borders

A Free Online High School for

Ukrainian Refugees and Displaced Persons

Ukrainian Grades 9-11

"The Ministry of Education and Science of Ukraine supports the creation of a Ukrainian online academy for students based on Citizen High School programs. This will support the continuity of education for students who are temporarily displaced abroad. This platform is especially useful for students who do not have the opportunity to continue their studying in the language of a country they are temporarily in. The courses of the Academy will be in English with Ukrainian translation. This will allow us to easily return to studying process in Ukraine immediately after our victory."
