The Virtual High School (VHS, Inc.)
The mission of The Virtual High School is to develop and deliver standards-based, student-centered online courses that increase educational opportunities and 21st century skills, and to provide professional development to educators that expand the scope and depth of their instruction.
- VHS believes that student-centered online courses can be designed and delivered to promote a high quality, collaborative learning environment where student exchange and interaction is a valued component of the instructional process.
- VHS believes that education need not be limited by barriers of time, place or availability; and that online learning should offer students the benefits of highly-qualified faculty and an innovative curriculum made up of diverse, exciting learning opportunities in a global classroom.
- VHS believes that online
teaching should enhance, rather than replace, traditional classrooms to
provide solutions for schools needing an expanded curriculum, teachers
seeking the latest skills, and students looking to stay competitive
through cutting-edge, quality instruction.
- VHS believes that the goals of education are advanced best by putting value and service first, and that a collaborative network of schools can become part of an abundant and generous educational community that promotes the affordable sharing of professional resources.
