Blended Learning
On Tuesdays and Thursdays, from 9:00 A.M. – 1:00 P.M., the SVUSD Virtual Academy offers face-to-face learning in a classroom environment.
  • While the curriculum is organized to maximize personalization and flexibility, students are also afforded with unique opportunities to work with their teachers and peers in a face-to-face environment to maximize student learning and engagement.


Attendance is based on work produced. A student receives full attendance credit as long as he or she completes the “time-value” of a minimum day. (Weekly assignments are geared to approximately 20-30 hours per week of concentrated study.) For example, if there were five school days in a particular week, and a student did at least five days worth of work, the supervising teacher could record attendance for five days.
