Virtual High School
Imagine classrooms without walls, where students are able to attend their classes 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Imagine students working cooperatively online with others from a wide variety of ethnic backgrounds and geographic locations.
What you are beginning to imagine is the reality of online courses in which accredited programs offer content-rich, credit-bearing high school courses to students across the country and around the world.
Virtual High School offers a catalog of full semester courses in the Arts, Foreign Language, Language Arts, Life Skills, Math, Science, Social Studies, Technology and Advanced Placement Study to students in VHS member schools. Core courses are NCAA accredited.
Why online courses at St. Dom’s? All online classes are teacher facilitated. Virtual classes take place entirely over the Internet. There is no need for special software or hardware. Anywhere you have access to the Internet you can take an online class! Students can post work to their class anytime, day or night.
Virtual classes are offered in a scheduled asynchronous mode. That means that classes follow a semester schedule and assignments are due at specified weekly intervals. However, students can complete their work at any time during the week, as long as work is posted by specified due dates.
The St. Dom’s site supervisor monitors and supports students work. Virtual courses appear on the report card and factor into the quarterly calculation for the honor roll.
