EVSC School Board Approves Fee Structure for Brand New Virtual Academy



Registration Now Taking Place and Information Session Planned

The Evansville Vanderburgh School Corporation Virtual Academy has expanded its offerings from high school curriculum to now offer curriculum for kindergarten through eighth grades. Enrollment is now taking place and the EVSC Board of School Trustees have approved fees for those who apply after the September 13 enrollment deadline.

The EVSC Virtual Academy will utilize Compass Learning software for full-time students and for blended instruction in K-8 schools. Already in place for high school students is the Apex online curriculum. While there will be no registration or tuition fee for full-time students from both inside Vanderburgh County and outside who enroll prior to the official September enrollment date; there will be a $50 registration fee and a $50 tuition fee per month of enrollment for those enrolling after that time.

Compass Learning is an industry leader and has a long history of working with elementary and middle school curriculum and first introduced computer curriculum in the 1980s. The curriculum meets Common Core standards and will provide reports and data for students, teachers, and parents working with home school options. The high school Virtual Academy began during the summer of 2010 and has seen tremendous success rates of completion and expansion to now offer Advanced Placement courses.

An Information Session is planned on April 25 from 6:30-8:30 p.m. at the Southern Indiana Career & Technical Center, located at 1901 Lynch Road.
