MERIDIAN, Idaho–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Students at Idaho Virtual Academy (IDVA), an online public charter school, will begin the 2019-2020 school year on September 3 simply by turning on their computers. The AdvancED-accredited public school is available to students statewide in grades K-12.
Combining innovative technology with a rigorous curriculum, IDVA provides each student with a personalized learning experience led by Idaho-certified teachers. Students take a full course load in the core subjects of math, science, history, and English/language arts with electives such as music, art, physical education, and world languages across all grade levels, as well as Advanced Placement courses in high school.
Students enroll in online school for a variety of reasons, including advanced learning, a bullying-free environment, and the ability to balance academic goals with extracurricular pursuits or medical needs. For many students, IDVA offers an education they wouldn’t otherwise have access to, and graduates have gone on to attend top higher education institutions in Idaho and beyond.
“We are excited to continue to build student success in the online classroom this year,” said IDVA teacher Megan Orias. “By making a commitment to personalized learning for each of our students, we are on a mission to prepare them for wherever their future may take them.”
IDVA’s dedicated teachers facilitate lessons during live, interactive online classes, allowing students to enjoy a safe learning environment anywhere with an internet connection. In addition to scheduled classes, teachers offer one-on-one instruction and support and personal family communications to build close partnerships in support of academic success.
Throughout the year, IDVA fosters a sense of community through in-person field trips and social outings and celebrates graduating seniors with in-person commencement ceremonies held in three locations across the state each spring. Virtual clubs and organizations also allow students to further explore shared interests in an online setting.
IDVA is accepting enrollment applications for the 2019-2020 school year. Families are encouraged to attend an online or in-person information session hosted by the school.
