Online University Prep High School

What is the difference between the TK-12 Home School program and the Online University Prep High School program?
Online University Prep students are planning on attending a four year college or university after graduation. Classes are taken online and students can contact content teachers for support by email or phone. Students can also sign up for Zoom through the teacher’s virtual tutoring link. A-G/Honors courses are available to help students prepare for college/university. High school students in the Home School high school program are taught by their parent educator with the support of a credentialed teacher. Learn more about Online University Prep here.

My child is college-bound, do you offer A-G/Honors courses?
Yes, our online curriculum satisfies college and university admissions requirements. University Prep also offers required labs for Biology, Chemistry, and Physics. Spanish Voice Labs are offered through video conferencing.
How can I finish high school at home?
University Prep students complete classes, classwork, and exams online with their teacher’s support. Students meet with teachers in small student group meetings that are conducted virtually and in public places (coffee shops, libraries, etc.) within the students’ communities.
How does online University Prep work?
Students complete their coursework in our online program with the support of their mentor teacher and content teachers. Students complete personalized projects using technology to achieve success in a standards-based curriculum. Core classes are supported by a content teacher who is available to students through email, chat, Google Hangouts, and office hours. The goal of University Prep is to prepare students to meet A-G requirements. All students will be enrolled in classes that meet these requirements.
What are Learning Assessments?
Learning Assessments provide students with a clear view of where they stand academically and determine what they’re ready to learn next to build their personalized learning plan. Students in grades nine through eleven will participate in the Northwest Evaluation Association (NWEA) MAP reading and mathematics assessments. Learning Assessments will be referenced in the student’s Master Agreement and will be administered to all Visions students.
Does Visions offer high school dances and other social opportunities?
Visions students enjoy all the social opportunities other high school students have and many more. These include dances, student meeting experiences, and extracurricular writing classes. Activities vary by academy, but all students are given opportunities to socialize and make new friends.
Can I graduate early?
This will depend on the student’s unique circumstance and personalized educational plan developed with the student’s counselor. Students must receive approval from their Principal to ensure early graduation.
