How Virtual High School sees itself
"Virtual High School has been a trusted leader in online education since 2001. Students at VHS choose when and where to study, when to submit assignments, and when to write their online final exams. We recognize that no two learners are the same. With certified teachers, free tutoring, dedicated student support teams, school community events, and an outstanding administrative staff, we stay focused on meeting the needs of each student to deliver the best in online secondary education."
"Our student-centred support services help to provide an unparalleled educational experience. VHS teachers are trained to teach in an online environment, offer individualized attention to students, and provide invaluable feedback on all assignments. The VHS administrative team is available via phone, email, and live chat to answer questions and assist students in meeting personal deadlines. Our Student Academic Support service gives students access to free academic coaching and homework help."
"Virtual High School is popular among families because of its renowned reputation at post-secondary institutions across Canada and around the globe. Many VHS graduates attend major universities and colleges in Canada, so you can rest assured that VHS is a household name. After 20 years of developing and teaching courses online, VHS is unrivaled in terms of experience, credibility, and expertise."
"The VHS learning experience comes with the unique opportunity to engage with students from across the world. We facilitate frequent online community events to encourage students to connect with each other, offering them the chance to interact with people from different cultures, learn new skills, and share their passions. Recreational activities provided by VHS include meet-and-greets, student clubs, trivia competitions, guest speakers, and social media features."
"We recognize that not all students learn in the same way, so we have produced courses with built-in accommodations that support a variety of student needs. VHS courses meet or exceed provincial accessibility standards and include text-to-speech capabilities. Instruction is differentiated, providing learning materials via text, video, multimedia assets, and interactive activities. Where possible, assessments allow students flexibility in the medium or format they use to present ideas."
"- Our first course was written in 1995. - Virtual High School received its inspected private school status from the Ontario Ministry of Education on September 1, 2001. - Over 130 certified teachers facilitate over 70 courses at VHS. - We have 40+ administrative staff members dedicated to helping our students succeed. - The student body at VHS spans more than 120 countries."
