    Distance Learning

    VLA is well positioned to ensure that learning will continue. Staff is working tirelessly to ensure all students are supported and working while our campus is closed. Our virtual workshops are essential components to this process.

    Virtual Learning Academy

    The Virtual Learning Academy of Natomas Charter School is a college-style hybrid academy for students in grades 9-12. VLA  offers teacher-designed curriculum delivered through a combination of online and classroom based instruction.  VLA students take advantage of the flexibility provided by an online classroom to complete online modules, participate in online discussions, and complete written assignments online when it fits into their daily schedule. Online assignments are enhanced with weekly classroom based workshops. During class, students complete wet labs, participate in Socratic discussions, work with small groups, and engage in hands-on learning experiences. VLA allows students to engage in a small, collaborative learning community unlike any other. The learning center allows students to work in a shared space that mimics that of a college student union, rather than a traditional high school campus. VLA students defy traditional high school norms to create lasting friendships across social divides.
