Student Portal: My Academy by Canvas
We’re excited to introduce you to our Learning Management System, My Academy, by Canvas. This platform will make it easier for you to stay up to speed with all of your Academy work --whether it’s homework, project due dates, teacher communications, or grades.
So let’s get started!
To login to your student account, all you have to do is:
Once you enter that web address, you will prompted to sign into your Academy student email (this is your school gmail account).
Once you sign in to your email, you will arrive on your dashboard.
For parents to successfully set their parent or observer accounts up, this activity is best done with your enrolled Academy student at your side, and it shouldn’t take longer than 5 minutes.
Parent/Observer set-up is a two part process of 1) your student generating and retrieving an observer code. Once you have the code, the parent can 2) create a Canvas account by going to the Canvas Parent Login.
If you are having any trouble with this process, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
Below are fantastic videos to give you an overview of Canvas, and the My Academy application.
