Frequently Asked Questions
Can Silverdale Online Academy students participate in sports at Silverdale Baptist Academy?
No. According to the TSSAA guidelines, students are required to be enrolled in 5 courses that count toward the graduation requirements and pay full tuition to participate with SBA teams. Additionally, the ISC (Independent School Conference) requires participants to be physically attending and enrolled as a full-time student. We encourage you to reach out to your local youth associations, homeschool association, or church organization for organized sports opportunities.
Can my child enroll in an on-campus course?
Currently, we do not offer any on campus courses for students not enrolled at Silverdale Baptist Academy.
Can our family enroll in Silverdale Homeschool?
Yes! Please check out Silverdale Homeschool for more information. This option allows your student records to be kept on the Bonny Oaks campus, transcripts to be maintained for college applications, student advisor assigned, participation with some after school programs, and much more!
What are the graduation requirements?
Silverdale Online is a ministry of Silverdale Baptist Academy that requires each family to submit a statement of faith. Our desire is for every student to grow spiritually through the study of God's Word. Students should have 4 Bible credits including semester courses in Worldview, Philosophy, and Apologetics if your plan is to graduate from Silverdale Online Academy. We will follow the state graduation requirement of the state of your residence.
What diploma options are there?
We would like for the Online Academy to mimic the brick-and-mortar school program. The students can proceed through Upper school on a university path that will include all necessary requirements to graduate and apply for college, an honors path will require a minimum of 7 courses that are honors, AP or DE level, STEAM path requires 4 science credits, or the Fine Arts path will require 4 Fine Arts credits.

Absolutely! We encourage your family to join the live stream of our chapel programs each Wednesday: Elementary - 9:00am , Middle School - 2:00pm, High School - 12:00pm. All times will be in the Eastern time zone.
