School Structure

EVA students attend weekly online sessions where they receive live instruction and support from teachers and have the opportunity to collaborate with their peers. While students have the freedom to complete their 100% online coursework when and where they want, instructors help keep them on track with daily reminders, check-ins, tutoring, live instruction and corrective feedback.

Our Educators

Each student is assigned a homeroom teacher and a counselor to ensure academic success and support throughout their virtual learning journey. Each Virtual Elite Educator is credentialed, highly qualified and passionate about helping each one of their students succeed academically and become college and career ready.

Instructors lead weekly live sessions to provide instruction, facilitate student collaboration, host virtual field trips and assist with projects and test preparation. Because they don’t have a traditional classroom to manage, teachers are available to provide personal instruction and support to students during regular business hours.
