When Lavane Anderson enrolled in our Education for Careers course this fall, he was on a mission to meet his peers in twelfth grade by Spring 2019.

Ashely Sabo (above with daughter Taylor) said she was so pleased with Taylor's focus on her course and ownership of the experience. "This experience gave some structure to her day.

“My name is Tracy Louque and I am a senior in the class of 2014. I made the decision to attend Village Virtual because I suffered with classroom anxiety. During the semester that I attended Village Virtual, the teachers were very supportive. They made my learning environment as most comfortable for me as possible and they really showed compassion.”
"I wanted to just send you a quick note to tell you how much my niece LOVED your English 11 course. . . She told me more than once that she learned more in the class than any other English class she has ever taken…She loved the format, the presentations, and surprisingly, she was extremely motivated to retake quizzes and assignments until she had mastered them.”
Jeanie Rodgers (above with grandson Cadin) said that she believed Cadin's success in the course built his confidence as a learner and she loved the affirmation of learning that was so much more immediate in the online environment.
" I have LOVED online learning though Village Virtual. My freshman and sophomore year in public school was terrible. I was taking all honors classes but learning nothing. . . . I spent the majority of my time in public school bored out of my mind. By the time I reached the end of my sophomore year, I knew something had to give.”
