eVirtual Academy gives its users

material, so that students can start at any point
during the year and use the program as they choose.

support for their regular classroom activities. If you are
new to homeschooling, we recommend reading our

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