Virtual High School (VHS) is a non-profit organization that collaborates with schools to offer online, content rich, credit-bearing high school courses to students across the country and around the world. (www.govhs.org)
VHS courses are not digital correspondence classes or virtual lecture halls. VHS believes in student-centered classes, which encourage collaboration among students. Students read lessons, work on and submit their assignments, participate in group projects with peers from around the globe, and contribute to class discussions at any time, as long as they meet due dates for the class assignments and keep up with the general flow of the class. (www.govhs.org) Prior to enrolling in a particular VHS course, students must review the course’s prerequisites to ensure they meet all class requirements, fill out a teacher/counselor recommendation form, and complete a VHS Pre-Student Survey.
