No, any student who resides in Kansas is allowed to enroll at SVVCS
No tuition cost exists. The only fee students are asked to pay is $50.00 a year for rental of a MacBook Air or Chromebook. Students can elect to use their own computer at home and not incur the $50.00 charge. All computer applications utilized in our program are web based and can be accessible on any computer connected to wifi.
We currently enroll any full-time student from grades K-12. An adult program is also available for students who are the age of 19 or older.
A student is asked to come to SVVCS at least 2 times each school year for events.
We currently have an instructor available via phone, text, Google Hangout and email for all English, History, Math and Science classes. In addition, an instructor is available for all elective classes. Each K-12 student is required to do a video face-to-face conference weekly with his/her seminar teacher.
No, our instructors do not provide direct instruction. Students work at their own pace and access instructors as needed for help and support.
A student is expected to complete 30 online lessons per week. This typically equates to about 20-25 hours per week. If a student does this, he/she will be on track to graduate with his/her cohort or peer group. Thirty lessons each week for an entire semester also allows a student to complete at least six classes each semester.
SVVCS does not sponsor events like prom or homecoming but a personalized graduation ceremony is held once a student has completed the program. A diploma from USD 400 Smoky Valley School District is issued to the graduate.
Each month, a social activity is planned and students are highly encouraged to participate. Such events include field trips, guest speakers, fun games and prizes!
No, the school's internet filter does not reach into your home. It only filters internet sites accessed within the district's buildings. Parents may consult with their internet provider to see what options are available for a home filter package.
