Catching Rays and Getting A's!

How it Works
Summer school students access their VHS course from a computer with an internet connection. Up to 25 students complete the course together in a virtual class. A VHS trained teacher posts assignments and provides guidance and support.
You must be a full-time middle or high school student to enroll in VHS courses. Students spend about 90 minutes a day completing weekly assignments, working together on projects, and contributing to online discussions.
Get the word out to students about VHS Summer School. Download one of our flyers and post in a common area to let your community benefit from online learning over the summer.
