At VLACS, you choose how you learn, from traditional coursework to real-life problem-solving, internships, and more.
Whether you learn best through traditionally structured coursework, or something more experiential, you’ll find options that fit your strengths and interests.
VLACS coursework allows you to gain new knowledge through reading, watching videos, listening to podcasts, and completing assignments to demonstrate what you’ve learned — all at your own pace, with one-on-one support from your instructor.
A VLACS project contains four to six pre-defined sets of real-world, career-focused problems. You’ll solve the problems through in-depth research and application, culminating in a finished product such as a report, video, or portfolio. Each problem in a project lets you master a specific competency through your product.
Experiences are our most customizable learning option. During an experience, you’ll explore various career fields and interests by interacting with professionals and other experts, practicing skills, and reflecting on what you’ve learned. You earn course credit by demonstrating that you’ve mastered one or more subject competencies through your experience.
VLACS offers career learning opportunities for grades K-12. Students have fun exploring their interests and learning about different careers through information sessions, mentorship, internships, work experience, career-focused courses, and more.
