We have gone online! Check out the Moodle Site! Or join us on Facebook!
We are excited to announce that our high quality independent study courses are now being delivered through our new Virtual Learning Academy. Since Fall of 2012, students have been able to experience individual support, teacher developed curriculum, and student interaction with the added benefit of more interactive curriculum and real world assignments. If you are interested in VLA, please fill out the Virtual Learning Academy (VLA) application. You can complete the application online, then print it out and bring it to the VLA office, along with all the required supporting documents. Watch a presentation that outlines the Virtual Learning Academy. Please click here if you would like to register for an information session. Sessions are held each month on specific Wednesday nights from 6-7 pm in the Virtual Learning Academy Office (Building C). Please join us to talk about how the academy can support your student and to get your questions answered. If you prefer, you can call us at (916) 928-5343 to set up an individual meeting during school hours (Monday-Friday 8-4) so that you can see the campus in action.
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.
