VLACS is New Hampshires' first, statewide, online virtual public high school and middle school where we offer students the opportunity to learn at their own pace from anywhere. Students thrive with our one-to-one student to instructor ratio, and are taught by highly qualified, New Hampshire-state certified instructors. Instructors and students interact regularly through email, voice mail, telephone and instant messenger. Students are encouraged to contact the instructor when there is a need of any kind. Instructors speak via telephone with students and their parents at least once a month. Our mission is to use the latest technology to provide our students to a rigorous, personalized education that helps students learn today, graduate tomorrow and prepare for the future.

Completing Assignments

When starting the course, students have access to all assignments, however, access to tests or quizzes may not be available until students complete certain assignments. Students move sequentially through the course and may be allowed to occasionally move ahead or test out of certain areas, pending instructor approval.

The Grade Book

Every graded assessment is recorded in the student's personal grade book, which is available to all parents who know the student's user name and password—something we highly recommend! Routinely monitoring grades allows you to see student progress over time. Parents can review all graded assignments and current overall grade average.

Work Load Expectation

Each student is required to submit a specific amount of work each week to maintain the appropriate pace decided on by the instructor and student. The number of required weekly submissions depends upon the course taken. A student's failure to maintain pace results in warnings, reduced grades and, if unheeded, withdrawal from the course.

The Pace Chart

All VLACS courses have a Pace Chart embedded in them. This allows a student to know exactly what instructors expect him or her to submit on a weekly basis, whether the student chooses a traditional, extended or accelerated pace. Instructors assist students in modifying the chart to reflect their chosen pace.
