Our Online Experience – FAQs
ALVS’s courses are developed to cover the college preparatory content that students need to master, and because we provide interactive supports and scaffolds to access that content and learn from it, our online students are consistently successful.
A student’s educational experience is personalized immediately upon enrollment. Experienced guidance counselors work with each student and their adult advocate to determine the level of rigor and number of courses. A challenging, but manageable course load is designed for each student. Throughout enrollment, guidance counselors review progress and share best practices and strategies to support high student achievement within our program. Frequent communication is made between students, parents, and instructors to offer schedule support and academic enrichment.
In addition, a weekly progress report is emailed to designated adults for the duration of the course. Designated adults – we call them coaches – can be parents, guardians, local school staff, tutors, or mentors. These reports enable the coach to help their student stay on track and motivated. ALVS research shows that adult engagement is a key indicator of success for online students.
Live chat is available Monday through Friday, 7am-5pm PST. Our online tutors are available to answer questions and assist students in navigating their coursework.
Your teacher will respond to questions asked using our message center or you can request to speak by phone or video to receive help and support in your course.
Our Upper School counselors provide advice tailored to the goals of each student. For example, student athletes receive guidance about NCAA eligibility and academic plans appropriate to their collegiate sports pursuits. For students who intend to apply to a public California university, school counselors assist with specific coaching about approved courses.
At ALVS, we understand that connecting with other students is one of the most important parts of a great school experience. Online school activities serve as excellent extracurricular activities for children of all ages.

Our wide range of online school activities and clubs allows students the opportunity to:
- Easily make friends
- Connect with other students across the world

- Participate in fun contests and competitions

ALVS was a great program for our daughter… ALVS has bent over backwards to help us with anything we needed and the whole experience has been excellent from registering to taking the classes, to helping with transcripts and even letters of recommendation. The teachers are excellent and had phone discussions with my daughter on a regular basis.”
“My son chose Apex Virtual School over all the other opportunities, including a great brick and mortar private high school and a well-known online high school.”
“Great fit for my student athlete. Enrolled as a full time high school student and from our first inquiry phone call to receiving my child’s official transcript, all my child’s teachers and Apex staff were professional, engaging and positive. My son’s take away was that he needed to be responsible for his time, engage to learn his lessons, and grades were not given but earned.
Parental tools were helpful in knowing where my child was positioned in his coursework as he spent a significant amount of time away from home. Easy recommendation”
