Long Term Independent Studies is now "The Virtual Learning Academy", 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.
The Virtual Learning Academy is FREE of charge and open to all students in the Oak Grove School District and to all in the state of California with an inter-district transfer.
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.
Parents need to request enrollment to the Virtual Learning Academy at least five days in advance. This request should be made by calling the Program Office at (408) 225-5675 X 312241.

The Long Term Independent Study Travel Program offers families an alternative to fully withdrawing from school when travel is longer than 10 school days.
This choice program moves traveling students from their local school site to OGSD Independent Study Program, and places each student on a contract to complete all assigned school work while away from the local area.
