Virtual Learning Academy - Long Term (Semester to One School Year)
For families wanting to homeschool their children we offer a long term study option.  Our program is an established, alternative instructional program through which all enrolled pupils in grades TK-8 may achieve curriculum objectives in a setting other than the regular classroom. Virtual Learning Academy gives parents the opportunity to teach their children at home with support from a supervising, credentialed teacher. This program offers monthly Class Days and Field Trips to build a vibrant community of learners of all age groups. These are standards based and designed to enrich the curriculum for all students.


Two options are available: Online and traditional textbook. Both options are rigorous, relevant and focused on high expectations for all students. Both are district approved and aligned to the Common Core State Standards.

The program offers educational class days and field trips that are designed to promote the social and emotional development of students who are learning at home.
