By: Arnold Communications
The new Flexible Courses Program offers eight commonly challenging core courses for four or eight weeks, including Algebra 1, Algebra 2, Biology, English 9, Geometry, Health, Personal Finance and U.S. History: 1877 – Present. Students can finish their course earlier than the anticipated completion date or take up to 15 weeks.
All classes are led by highly qualified teachers who are specially trained in online teaching best practices, and are certified in their subject areas, providing the ideal solution for those requiring tutoring or extra assistance. Courses are designed to inspire, ignite and deepen learning as well as enable the development of independent learning skills and participation in global classrooms.
“These courses do more than simply get kids through their lessons so that they can matriculate or graduate on time,” said Jeffrey A. Elliott, President & CEO of VHS. “Our Flexible Courses provide an authentic learning experience so that students receive the high quality education for which VHS is known.”
