Online Middle School

Grades 6-8

IVLA provides a full education for middle school students.  IVLA’s online middle school focuses on the student’s ability to start working directly with subject area teachers. Middle school students traditionally take 4 core courses: Language Arts, Math, Science and Social Studies.  These courses, certified teachers, and success coaches are geared to preparing students for future success in high school.

Because students vary in their academic abilities, IVLA offers courses that will help students fill in the gap or accelerate their learning.  Additionally, students and parents will work with their success coach to ensure the needs of their student are met.

Moreover, middle school students may earn high school credit in math or foreign language. For example, students who have met the math prerequisites for Algebra I, Geometry or Algebra II, may take these courses for high school credit.  Seventh and eighth grade students may also take a foreign language either within their desired program or Rosetta Stone.

All other high school level electives are open to seventh and eighth grade students.  However, these credits may not be used for high school credit by regulations from college entrance requirements.

Middle school students will also enjoy bi-weekly homeroom sessions where they will get to know their fellow classmates while engaging in fun activities!  These sessions are conducted in private virtual classrooms and led by their success coach.

Online Middle School Parent and Student Expectations

IVLA recognizes that the maturity level of middle school students varies. Unquestionably, some students will need more guidance from their success coach, teacher, and parents while others will be most successful working independently. In either case, IVLA relies on the parents to work with their student’s success coaches at meeting these needs. Above all, parent communication is vital to the success of the student.
