Can eVirtual Academy run on any computer, iPad or other tablet?

Generally, yes. A PC or Mac computer with "fast access" internet is required. Although some subscribers have been able to access with a satellite connection or the Linux-based operating system, it is not recommended. All high school level courses are now available on the iPad and Android tablets.  K-8 lessons currently use flash-based technology. It may be possible to use an app, such as Splashtop, to convert the Flash content, but  we cannot guarantee that all or any of the program will function properly.

Can I use eVirtual Academy as a comprehensive homeschool program?

eVirtual Academy gives its users access to an entire years worth of educational material, so that students can start at any point during the year and use the program as they choose. Many of our users are homeschoolers who use the program as their core curriculum, while others use it to supplement their curriculum or as additional support for their regular classroom activities.  If you are new to homeschooling, we recommend reading our Guide for Parents and Educators, which is available upon request 

All 50 states in the U.S. allow parents to issue a homeschool diploma to a child they feel has met or exceeded the guidelines for high school graduation. To check comparable public school graduation requirements, check your state Board of Education website.

Why is eVirtual Academy beneficial to exceptional students?

Every student is unique, possessing a combination of strengths, talents and learning challenges which may require a customized approach to learning. Each subject can be set to a specific grade level. For example, if a student is advanced in math, but behind in language arts, the curriculum can be adjusted accordingly, allowing students to work at their individual level and pace, and even repeat lessons if necessary. In addition, K-8 students are given access to one grade level above and one grade level below their placement so they can review material or move ahead when they're ready. The lessons are designed to stimulate the visual, auditory and motor skills of students with multi-sensory activities that are animated & interactive, to appeal to the students' learning style and help keep them engaged.

What are the differences between K-8 and high school level subjects?

High school is organized by courses rather than grade level, and as such, students do not have access to three levels like they do in grades K-8. However, once a student has completed all of the course material, they may move on to another course. An added element to high school courses are short, embedded teacher-led discussions and lectures, and engaging theatrics.  The high school courses also provide notes and printable transcripts for students to use as a refresher for chapter tests and standardized exams.

Are the courses self-paced?

Yes, students can work at any time, even on weekends and holidays. The program is available 24/7. There are no specific due dates or completion times, so the student is able to spend extra time on more challenging lessons, or work ahead if they choose.

Do students receive a report card or transcripts?

The system records all grades and lessons completed by the student, and it's extensive array of reporting capabilities can be used to create transcripts or be included in a homeschool portfolio. Typically, a full year high school level course is equivalent to one credit. Similarly, a one semester course is generally equivalent to one-half credit. Another way of counting credits is in hours spent on coursework. In general, 120-160 hours spent on a course equals one credit, while 60-90 hours of work equals one-half credit. For additional information, please refer to our Guide for Parents and Educators, which is available upon request.
