Academic Success

student-learning
Students attending ALVS work with experienced guidance counselors to chart a personalized path of courses and schedules that meet students’ individual academic goals. Our counselors closely monitor each student’s progress to ensure graduation requirements are met.  Our lead counselor, Joseph O’Leary, has served as Guidance Director for ALVS for the past five years. He has thirteen years of experience in education, three as a classroom teacher, and ten as a school counselor.  Having earned a M.Ed. in School Counseling from The University of Massachusetts, Joe nsures all counselors working with ALVS students focus on supporting successful educational experiences and outcomes.  Joseph has established strong relationships with the NCAA, The College Board, and district high school administrators throughout the country.  Joseph’s focus is to ensure student achievement in the ALVS virtual setting.

In the past two academic years, ALVS has had a 90 percent passing rate. Students succeed in our courses because of the learning support provided in every lesson, the experienced online teachers, and the ongoing monitoring of each student’s progress. Parents are kept informed with weekly student progress reports via email.

Live Academic Support

Students shouldn’t have to wait 24 to 48 hours for help!   ALVS students get the support they need, when they need it. Real-time support with ALVS teachers and tutors also includes text and video chats.

I’m finished!! … This is my last online high school class. Thank you for being my teacher again. You are AWESOME 😀
