Columbia Virtual Academy
Our courses uniquely engage students and address multiple learning styles through an expertly designed multi-media mix of streaming videos, flash-based activities, podcasts, text, and voice discussion forums, blog writing, on-demand synchronous tutoring, web exploration, and research, objective and subjective assessments, Discovery Education® videos, custom textbooks and much more. Students thoroughly cover each concept through essential instruction, re-teaching, extension activities, and assessments.
Our courses can be adapted to fit your students’ individual needs. Content can be rearranged and customized for individual learning paths based on testing and discussions with academic mentors and instructors.
Materials provided to full-time CVA students – All full-time virtual students will be loaned a computer with all of the software needed, and a printer. LLVS will also reimburse families for internet services according to our internet policies.
