The Virtual Academy Curriculum

The Virtual Academy (TVA) and Online Christian Consortium (OCC) curriculum is accredited through the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC) and the Southern Association of Independent Schools (SAIS). Additionally, the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) and the University of California approve all of the core academic courses. The Virtual Academy’s 3 year accreditation from local regional agencies begins with the launch of the program. TVA courses will be academically rigorous and will prepare students for their college experience.

All of TVA and OCC college preparatory courses have been developed or selected to foster critical thinking skills. In addition, TVA will strive to foster personal responsibility with high expectations for academic achievement and intellectual growth. Both the Hybrid and Full-time Programs include opportunities for increased engagement through weekly live lessons, instructor feedback, and collaborative experiences. The hallmark to our rigorous curriculum will be our dedication to provide students a personal connection with Christian World View integration.

Over the next 5 years, TVA will create S.T.E.A.M. centered curriculum tracks in conjunction with OCC to offer students a customized education. These S.T.E.A.M. tracks will give our students opportunities to enhance their education in the areas of Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics. These fields are dynamic and ever growing, and emphasis in them will set TVA apart from other virtual academies.
