Interesting & Engaging Courses

Between the variety of online and blended programs we can provide, and the diverse backgrounds of students and faculty in our global classrooms, it should be no surprise that our catalog is just as assorted.

From core courses and graduation requirements, to advanced learning and career oriented electives, it’s hard not to find the class you are looking for in our course catalog.

Advanced Learning
VHS has one of the largest online Advanced Placement® catalogs in the nation. With over 20 AP® courses to choose from, students can earn college credit, or delve deeper into subjects of interest with unique offerings such as AP® Computer Science, AP® World History, AP® Music Theory and AP® Human Geography.

We also offer a number of Gifted and Talented courses for accelerated students.

Our wide range of elective courses are a big draw for students year after year.  With Language Arts classes including Ghoulies, Ghosties and Long-Legged Beasties and 101 Ways to Write a Short Story, Social Studies supplements such as the Lewis and Clark Expedition, and Science courses that range from Environmental Chemistry to Nuclear Physics, we offer interesting subjects seldom found in a school’s curriculum.
