Join our Virtual Learning Academy Family!

The Virtual Learning Academy (VLA) provides an engaging community of learning focused on supportive relationships that recognize everyone's talents. This learn-at-home option for Kindergarten through 8th grade blends traditional textbooks with online assessments, lessons, and games that reinforce learning. Students achieve curriculum objectives in a setting other than the traditional classroom. Virtual Learning gives parents the opportunity to teach their children at home or on the road with the support from a supervising, credentialed teacher. Students develop study habits and independent thinking skills through the virtual learning experience that make them more academically prepared for college and careers in the 21st Century.

The Virtual Learning Academy is FREE of charge and open to all students in the Oak Grove School District and to all students in Santa Clara County and the adjoining counties of Santa Cruz, San Mateo, San Joaquin, Stanislaus, Merced and San Benito with an inter-district transfer.
