San Diego Virtual School works just like most other schools in that students enroll, take courses to fulfill requirements, and graduate with a legitimate and nationally recognized high school diploma. Of course, as a virtual school, we do offer our students some unique experiences and specialized skills that students in a traditional school do not have access to. The most important aspects of how our school works include everything being online, a completely free education, teacher-supported learning, flexible scheduling, and a thorough commitment to student success.

Free Online School Have you found yourself asking, “How much is online school?” San Diego Virtual School is a free public charter school. Since this is a public program, the same funding used for traditional students can be used for online students; therefore, there is no fee for taking online courses for most students.

Students that want to get ahead or need additional opportunities for learning are great candidates for online learning. Having the option will increase the success of students as you look for the best kind of education for your child. Even if you’re not sure what virtual school is, inquiring about it is the first step to finding the best education your child can get.

Everything is Online It works just like a traditional middle and high school, except everything is online. You can log in and access your courses from home, the public library, or anywhere there is a computer and internet access. Being able to access courses anytime and anywhere enables students to learn in an environment that is convenient for them. Students that have these options available to them get to choose the learning environment that will help them focus on their studying, which may result in earning better grades and learning more in less time.

Some students prefer to work in quiet, solitary areas like their bedroom or an office, while other students may enjoy the soft, ambient noise of a library. Each student has unique needs and preferences. The better these needs can be met, the more effective their learning will be.

Teacher-Supported Learning California-certified teachers are available on-demand via phone, email, or instant message. Teachers are available Mondays through Fridays from 8:00 am to 3:00 pm. Our teachers even have a virtual online whiteboard to visually explain concepts to you.

Commitment to Student Success We are committed to the success of every student. Our teachers work directly with you to help orient you into your online classes and answer any questions. It’s important to everyone at San Diego Virtual School that your child gets the best possible education in circumstances and environments that help them to get the most out of their online school experience.

Flexible Scheduling Online schooling is highly flexible when it comes to scheduling. Curriculum and guidelines still need to be followed and students are expected to complete a full course load each semester, but students can work at their own pace. Unlike traditional schooling, you do not need to be awake at a specific time and don’t need to attend classes on a predetermined schedule. Online schooling enables the ultimate freedom for students.

Families that are structured and help students learn in an efficient and effective manner can help students to work ahead of schedule. Students who use online schooling may end up progressing further and faster than their peers who do not utilize the benefits of online schooling.

With a flexible schooling schedule, students can have more options when it comes to planning out their day, weeks, and months. In addition, students will have a better chance at finding part-time work (where applicable) because their schedule is a lot more flexible than those who are strictly unavailable during standard school hours.
