Virtual Learning Groups

Many elementary students are choosing the option of online virtual school!

Our Virtual Learning Groups combine virtual mentoring with small learning groups, allowing children the best of both worlds!

HOW DOES IT WORK?

1) Families schedule VLG blocks of time; typically, these groups meet 3 - 4 times per week for 2 - 3 hour blocks. 

2) During half of the block students work on their virtual curriculum with a mentor, who helps keep them on track and assist when students need help.

3) Students spend the second half of the block immersed in enrichment studies, which may include STEM activities, project based learning, etc.

Virtual Learning Groups enable families the flexibility of virtual learning combined with structured enrichment activites that continue building knowledge and skills, and socialization time with peers.
