MERIDIAN, Idaho, March 29, 2016 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Idaho Virtual Academy (IDVA), a tuition-free, online public school for students in grades K-12 across the state of Idaho is now accepting applications for the 2016-2017 school year. IDVA students receive individualized instruction both online and offline with Idaho-credentialed teachers, using the world-class K12 curriculum.
"Idaho Virtual Academy has a focus on providing each and every student with a personalized learning experience with the tools they need to succeed," said Kelly Edginton, Head of School at IDVA. "Our teachers and staff invest in the unique needs of each student. We understand that many factors can cause students to struggle, and we excel in developing individualized learning that works for each and every child."
IDVA students work from home, full-time with an Individualized Learning Plan (ILP). The ILP allows for teachers to work closely with each student – allowing for greater support to be given to students struggling with a topic or skill or for students to move on when they have mastered a subject. Academically, IDVA offers core subjects, electives, and advanced learner programs, as well as socializing opportunities. Students can join clubs or participate in community-based projects and field trips.
Students enroll in IDVA for a wide variety of reasons. Some are advanced learners, motivated to increase their knowledge beyond the basic course offerings, while others are athletes or performers looking to balance a full schedule. Some enroll in order to take advantage of a different learning environment and a focused one-on-one learning experience. Additionally, IDVA offers an accredited alternative high school program, Vision High School, for students who meet state qualifications.
During the enrollment period IDVA will be conducting online and in-person information sessions throughout the state. Interested families are encouraged to attend to meet teachers, staff, and other families and to learn more about the award-winning online curriculum provided by K12.
