How does Virginia online middle school work?
Online middle school in Virginia combines the flexibility and tailored nature of homeschooling with the structure and support system of traditional schools. Students follow a traditional school calendar, are taught by Virginia-licensed teachers, and have access to extracurricular programs and activities that connect them with their peers.**
Grades 6–8 are critical years for students to address gaps in learning, master challenging concepts, prepare for high school, and form lasting friendships. The Stride K12-powered online middle school in Virginia uses quality curriculum and a personalized approach to learning, letting students explore topics that interest them, spend more time addressing education gaps, and expand their perspectives in new and interesting ways.
During the day, students participate in scheduled, live online classes from wherever they have an internet connection. Students work offline to complete subject and skill-level related assignments. These assignments can be completed independently, in small groups of peers, or with the assistance of their Learning Coach—usually a parent or another responsible adult who gives support and guidance to the student.
