IVLA is a private, accredited school. Our students are not considered homeschool students, as their courses are overseen and assignments graded by certified teachers. Students take between 4 and 6 courses each “school year”. These course requirements vary just a bit with grade level. For instance, Elementary and Middle School students take Language Arts, Math, Science and Social Studies each year. High school students take their level of these courses as well as a few other requirements over the course of their high school career. Each course is delivered online. There is no need for textbooks other than our Honors and AP courses for high school.
