Pursue Education on Your Terms

The Virtual Learning Academy is education designed to be online. We are a virtual school for elementary, middle, high school, and adult learners to earn a degree, earn some credits, explore an interest, or gain valuable career credentials.

Sometimes my students don’t give me an answer from the reading or the assignment. Their answers come from their passion and lives. I’m lucky that I get to see that in the classes that I teach for VLACS.

Your Next Move

VLACS supports every stage of the learning journey.

You have a partner in us as you navigate your next move academically. The last year has caused many to see online education in a new light. Some experiences were better than others.

Many students have used the flexibility and quality of VLACS to supplement their traditional, local education during this uncertain time. VLACS offers a number of opportunities to do so, explore a particular career path, or even earn a diploma through our full-time program.

Whatever your next move is, we would love for you to consider VLACS to be a part of it.

Learning takes place everywhere. At VLACS, students get credit for learning everywhere.

Our students can learn full-time or part-time. They can take a course or complete a project. They can experience an internship or a travel-based curriculum. They can obtain career skills through badges, learn with local business leaders, or team up with other virtual students to explore common interests.

With education designed to be online, we have the opportunity to offer both flexibility and rigor to ensure student success.
