"My daughter is LOVING Village Virtual. Truly, the best homeschooling experience she has had!" (Julie Edwards, mother of Emily Asciola)

“Village Virtual helped me get into my dream college,” says Emily Asciolla, a homeschool graduate who recently completed her senior year of study with Village Virtual. Emily said she tried other programs locally available, including co-ops and parent-led instruction, but found that it is critical to have access to teachers with experience in educating students. Says Emily, “It is particularly crucial to have a solid foundation in math and English in order to prepare for college. If you fall behind in math, especially, it is so hard to recover from that. With Village Virtual, your teacher is just a text away, and the teacher is focused on you, not on the whole class.” Having had three major surgeries in four years, Emily needed the anywhere, anytime access to courses and teachers possible with online learning, but she also believes that Village Virtual courses have well-prepared her for the rigors of college where she will have to be responsible for her own learning. Emily is attending Millsaps College in Jackson, MS, this fall where she will study Pre-Law with a major in Communications. She hopes to continue to law school where she will focus on Entertainment Law. “If it hadn’t been for Village Virtual, I probably wouldn’t have been able to get in,” says Emily. “I just can’t thank you guys enough.”
