We Guide You & Your Student From Day One
All students are assigned a success coach on or before the first day of school. This coach serves as a homeroom teacher and engagement specialist.
Combined with our certified teachers and professional staff, the success coach spends ample time acclimating the student and parents/guardians to our online learning environment.
We ensure students understand how to navigate our online school before classes begin. Students receive an onboarding experience, including preparation time focusing on technology, systems, and access to our academic program.
Parents receive an onboarding session for parent access and expectations within the first week. A virtual tour and meeting with the teacher/success coach will take place, in which students and parents/guardians will learn about live classes, drop-in office hours, review expectations, and address any next steps.
Students receive a mastery-based state-accredited curriculum aligned with target due dates and unit deadlines to assist them with pacing. Our program shows students’ comprehension and understanding of the materials–a private school quality curriculum for free.

Foundational Support for Success
We understand the importance of reading and comprehension in our program and offer individualized support to give our students the best chance of success.
For our 3rd and 4th-grade students, we identify individual reading levels and address gaps by providing supplemental instruction form our Reading Specialist.
Focused on Engagement
School Engagement is
More Than Just Talk.
At iSchool Virtual Academy, we recognize the significance of student engagement and the resulting academic success. We instill a sense of community by encouraging interaction between peers and teachers through live instruction, homeroom activities, virtual field trips, and engaging clubs.
Engaged students are 2.5 times more likely to say they get excellent grades and do well in school, and they are 4.5 times more likely to be more hopeful about their future than their actively disengaged peers.”

Parent Involvement is Key
Even with all the support from our staff, parent(s) must also serve as their student’s accountability partner. They should encourage and monitor consistent progression and success in their courses. Open communication with teachers and success coaches is vital to ensuring the child’s success.
