Our Online Experience – FAQs

Curriculum & Content
The mission of ALVS is to provide students with an exceptional educational experience. That’s why we place so much focus on developing a curriculum that meets the highest scholastic standards. Each comprehensive course is developed by a team of experts — curriculum professionals, instructional designers, subject-matter experts, and assessment specialists — who collaborate to challenge and motivate students.

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.

Personalized Scheduling
In our online private high school academy, full-time students at Apex Learning Virtual School’s receive a personalized learning program depending on individual abilities. Our personal touch is what sets this program apart from the rest. When students receive the one-on-one individualized attention they deserve, there’s no telling how successful they will be.

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.

Academic Support
Students attending ALVS receive real-time access to teachers and tutors through online chat, phone calls or video meetings as part of their course experience.

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.

Parental Support
We provide parents and guardians with their own personal account to monitor their student and view course content.  Parents and guardians have access to the same content their students are studying and can see what work the student has completed and grades for those assignments.

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.

Special Interest Clubs

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. Whether a student is interested in chess, robotics, poetry, art, the environment, or a myriad of other hobbies, ALVS has the perfect club.
Our wide range of online school activities and clubs allows students the opportunity to:

  • Easily make friends
  • Connect with other students across the world
  • Develop leadership skills
  • Explore new interests and expand their knowledge
  • Participate in fun contests and competitions
  • Have fun!

College & Career Prep
We are committed to ensuring our students are well-prepared to enter the colleges and universities of their choice.  We have the information and support they need to navigate the college admissions process. ALVS’s college counseling program explores all the ins and outs of the college admissions.  This includes selecting the right college, preparing for college entrance exams, requesting testing accommodations, assisting with college applications, composing rich letters of recommendation, and providing parent resources and scholarship and financial aid resources. The program includes webinars and individual coaching sessions with experienced counselors.

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.
