Approaches to Learning
All VA teachers have a single-subject credential in their subject area and are considered to be highly qualified teachers. Every teacher has experience working with homeschool students and in an online learning environment. Teachers are trained to safely and effectively use Zoom, Schoology, and Edmentum to enhance learning.
VA teachers partner with the entire learning team to ensure student success. The VA teachers, HSTs, learning coaches, and case managers all play a vital role in the student's educational journey and this partnership is crucial to the positive experience and success of all students.

"HSVA supports my learning by having interesting classes that draw me in and not push me out."
"The thing I like most is it is stress-free. I don't feel pressured, and the deadlines are very reasonable. The teachers are always very supportive, whether it is helping a student through an assignment in Office Hours, or just some moral support to help you out! "
"HSVA teachers go above and beyond to make sure I succeed. The online platform is easy to navigate and use."
"It has given me more freedom to get the stuff around the house done. It has also helped with my anxiety because the teachers are super helpful."
