Benefits of SCASD Virtual Academy
Courses are facilitated by a SCASD teacher to provide feedback and answer questions as your student works through courses at their own pace and at a time and place that suits them.
All Virtual Academy students graduate with their class and receive a State College diploma. As members of the district they have access to the activities and services of their assigned home building including:
- free tutoring services:
- zero period tutoring (high school)
- VIPs Tutoring Center
- Math Center (high school)
State High students in the IB higher level Applications and Interpretations class recently worked on a project titled “Barbie Bungee.” The assignment required three teams each to calculate how many rubber bands Barbie would need for a cord to safely plunge 18 feet.
“I am excited to continue with the administration team at State High and am looking forward to more opportunities to serve as an advocate for students, families and staff,” he said. “The ability to provide support and leadership to the high school community is extremely inspiring and humbling.”
