International Virtual Learning Academy 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.

1. Select Grade Level

We offer courses for kindergarten through adult high school.

4. Diplomas

For high school students

We provide three diploma programs. We want our students to be successful whichever path they choose. Before choosing a diploma program, we suggest that you discuss as a family your student’s plan beyond high school. This will help narrow down which plan is the best fit for your needs. If your plan includes a post-secondary program, we encourage you to research the entrance requirements of that program. Colleges and universities vary in their requirements for entering students. Once you know these requirements, we can help you build an academic plan that will fit your student’s needs.
