BLENDED CLASSES



Blended learning is a student-centered approach to creating a learning experience whereby the learner interacts with other students, with the instructor, and with content through thoughtful integration of online and classroom learning.

These classes are contracted with the Virtual Learning Academy but will not be independent study as other courses. There will be a scheduled course time with teacher assistance for the required 18 lessons.
