E-Learning Academy


We are pleased to offer a distinctive, whole-student learning approach for K-12 students impacted by COVID-19. The E-Learning Academy will take place in multiple area YMCA facilities and has been designed to support the online education and instruction your student will receive from school this fall.

The YMCA E-Learning Academy features:

  • Safe, WiFi-connected environment for students to complete school-assigned online instruction
  • On-site education support and tutoring
  • Peer connection and social-emotional development including CircleUp check-ins
  • Y Selectives, including fitness and athletic training, arts and hobbies, leadership development, and more

In addition to the E-Learning Academy, we have also adapted our After School Academy to meet the changing needs of our schools, students, and families.

Other questions? Please feel free to call your local branch at any time.


I am a Y member or past program participant. Why can’t the system locate my account?

The Y may have outdated information or a misspelled name in our system. Please call your local Y (locations here) and we can help you set up your account over the phone.

My child is a Y member of another Y outside of the YMCA of Northwest North Carolina. Can my child get Member prices?

If your child is a member of another Y, he/she qualifies for Member prices. If only the parent is a member, the child will not receive member prices. You will need to come into the branch to register in person, to receive the Member discount.

I am not a member, can I still sign my child up for E-Learning Academy?

Yes, you can still sign up without having a Y membership. As a Y member you get a lower rate on many of our programs. Click here to find out more about becoming a member.

Should I register myself or my child for the program?

While you, the adult primary account holder, will be listed as an option, please be sure to select your child’s name and register their name for the program.

Can I apply my Financial Assistance or system credit to my payment?

The system does not currently process any financial assistance price reductions, discounts, or account credits through online registration. You must visit the Y to register for this program and receive your discount at that time. Once you have registered, you can make payments online. We apologize for any inconvenience.

If you have any other questions about the registration process, please call your local Y branch. You are also welcome to stop by the Y to register for E-Learning Academy at any time.
