To the deliver the courses, the schools partnered with The Virtual High School (VHS), a nonprofit organization serving more than 600 schools and 18,000 students across 40-plus states and dozens of countries. VHS offers student-centered online education that provides a collaborative online and blended learning environment. The new courses, which includes 23 offerings for the Advanced Placement (AP) exam, follow standards for online learning set by the NEA (National Education Association).
VHS courses are designed to help student to satisfy prerequisites, provide more flexibility or help fast-track a diploma, while still meeting graduation requirements. Each course has a supportive qualified teacher (SQT) to assist students through lessons and provide grading and feedback on submitted work; students can collaborate with each other as well.
