Virginia Online High School Curriculum

Courses Specifically Designed for High School Students

VAVA uses the K12 high school curriculum to serve our students in grades 9–12. The K12 online high school environment blends the best features of the company's K-8 learning environment—the elegant and research-driven design, the compelling interactivity, the ease of use of both online and offline content—with key features designed to make the high school experience successful, given the far more complex high school world of content, skills, and time management.

A Robust Catalog of Courses Meets the Needs of Diverse Learners

The K12 high school course catalog is robust, offering several core and elective courses. Math, English/language arts, science, and history courses are offered in multiple versions to meet the needs of diverse learners with diverse goals. Two levels of world languages are offered as well. Students can chart their own course, choosing from among the different levels of courses to match their aptitude and goals.

With the K12 high school curriculum, students can harness the power of individualized learning by choosing from the following two versions of math, English/language arts, science, and history courses:

  • K12 Core courses are similar to the standard courses offered by many other programs. They meet all academic requirements for each course area both for graduation as well as for potential admission into a wide range of colleges.
