The Outschool Mobile App for iOS allows Learners 6 years and up to independently log onto Outschool to see class schedules, join live meetings, message their educators, and use the Outschool classroom for posts and comments from an iPhone or iPad.

Technical Requirements

  • iPhone - iOS 14 or greater

  • iPad - iOS 14 or greater

Logging onto the App

There are two ways to log into the mobile app:

  1. Parent Outschool credentials

  2. Learner email address

Logging in as the parent will allow you access to all your learner's information and their individual classes. If you created a Learner email address for your learner from the Outschool website, they will be able to log into the app and have access to their own classes.

After logging in, click on the “Get Started” button and enable Notifications, which will allow Outschool to send messages and post notifications to the mobile device.

Once this is completed, you will be placed in the “Who’s Learning?” screen. Click on a Learner to see their individual class information.

The “Enter as Parent” button is used to access the Parent profile.

In order to go into the Parent profile, you must first successfully pass the challenge question. If you have multiple learners, use the Profile button on the bottom right of the “My Classes” screen to select a different learner.

My Classes

When a Learner is selected, they will be placed in “My Classes” where their upcoming classes will be displayed. They can also join a class from here when it’s about to start.

The Learner will be placed into the classroom by clicking on their class. From there, the Learner can review and comment on posts, and send private messages to the Educator.

Profile & Settings

The “Profiles & Settings” page displays information about Public Settings, Private Settings, Transactions, Learner Profiles, Devices Settings, App version and other information associated with the account. This information is only available through the Parent profile.

Please note the Profile & Settings information is read-only and you must use the Outschool website to modify these settings.


Parents can use the Marketplace button on the bottom left of any non-Learner screen to search and purchase new classes for their learner.

Please note that Promo Codes/Coupons cannot be used to enroll you learners from the App at this time. If you have a Coupon, please apply it from the Outschool website.

From the Marketplace, you can also make an in-app purchase for Outschool Credits and Gift Cards. First, click on the Credit Balance symbol on the top right of the screen.

You can then use the "Buy Now" link to purchase Outschool Credits. Please note that the in-app purchase includes an Apple transaction fee. This fee is not imposed when purchasing from the Outschool website.

If you prefer, you can purchase and redeem Outschool Gift Cards, which can be also used to purchase enrollments and without the Apple transaction fee applied. Go here for additional information on the Outschool Gift Cards


Parents and Learners can access their messages from the educator by using their individual profiles.

Logging off of the App

In order to log off of the application, click on the profile on the top right of the screen to go to the Profile & Settings menu. Then, press the “Log out” link at the bottom of the menu to return to the Login screen.
