Information for Parents
Wondering if online learning might be a good option for your child? Our online classes are ideal for students with a wide range of needs. Some of our students take one or two online courses as part of a graduation plan. Some of our students are looking to upgrade a mark or jump ahead in their studies. Some of our students are elite athletes or performers that need a flexible school schedule. Some of our students find that online learning, for a variety of reasons, is simply a better fit. Each of our students works with a VLN counsellor to create a personalized learning plan and/or course plan to establish individual timelines and goals.
