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 Covid-19 school closures drove everyone to the online learning environment, some more abruptly than others.

Many students have used the flexibility and quality of VLACS to supplement their traditional, local education. 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.
