Virtual Learning Academy

The Virtual Learning Academy is a hybrid online independent study program that allows for a flexible schedule and individual attention. This learning community supports diverse students from all backgrounds in grades 9-12. Students that excel in VLA are motivated and willing to focus on their education. VLA works well for students that want to work independently and focus on their education, for example: athletes, upper classmen that want to start taking college courses at the local community colleges, and students that have a hard time concentrating in the classroom environment. VLA provides different academic pathways to assist students in taking the correct courses to reach their post-high school goals. The pathways include the general high school diploma and the college preparatory diploma pathway. Students meet bi-monthly with an academic coach one-on-one to go over their weekly work. Students then work independently on the assignments throughout the week. Students must attend mandatory workshop classes (weekly, bi-weekly, bi-monthly, or monthly) that align with their academic courses. These workshops supplement the work they complete individually. Students have access to a Learning Center and tutoring with the teachers.
