Frequently Asked Questions

This FAQ is a guide for parents purchasing courses for their students.
Schools, please visit: Apex Learning.

How do Course Credit and Accreditations work?

Will students get credit from their local school for individual courses taken via Apex Learning Virtual School?

Yes.  In the past five years, all local schools that accept online high school courses for credit have accepted ALVS courses.  (Note: Student must be currently enrolled at a local high school.)  As online learning has become more widespread and accepted, schools have become increasingly open to accepting credits, particularly from online schools such as ALVS which is nationally accredited and NCAA, AdvancEd and College Board® approved. Call your local school counselor if you want to confirm your student’s eligibility for a credit directly with his or her local school or, if it’s easier feel free to use this ALVS Course Credit form.

Is Apex Learning Virtual School accredited--AdvancED, UC, NCAA, College Board®?

AdvancEd – We are committed to high standards, academic excellence, and success for all students. Since 1999, Apex Learning has been accredited by AdvancEd. This certificate of accreditation recognizes ALVS for promoting and maintaining a well-balanced educational program and for exceeding standards considered essential for quality education.

UC – The University of California (UC) has certified Apex Learning standards-based courses in “a-g” instructional areas to fully prepare students for first-year university programs. Click on this link:  UC-approved-courses-2016-2018.pdf to open a pdf list of approved UC courses.

NCAA – ALVS courses and our instruction model have been approved by the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) as meeting the requirements for the initial-eligibility certification status for high school student-athletes wishing to compete in college. Please click on this link to see the list of our 80+ NCAA eligible courses.

College Board – ALVS was one of the first online high schools to be approved by the College Board® for our AP® curriculum.  Click on this link to see the list of our 13 AP courses.

Can students earn a diploma at Apex Learning Virtual School?

Yes. ALVS is a fully accredited private high school. Students can earn a college preparatory diploma through the full-time program. Details can be found here.

Student Support & Course Progress

How long does it take to get answers if students have questions?

ALVS students receive real-time access to teachers and tutors through online chat as part of the cost of their course.  Live chat is available Monday through Friday, 7am West Coast time through 8pm East Coast time. In addition, your Teacher will respond to questions asked using our message center within 1 business day and return assignments with grades and feedback within 3 business days.

Can parents and guardians receive progress reports for a student’s course?

A weekly progress report is emailed to designated adults once a week for the duration of the course.  Designated adults–we call them ‘coaches’–can be parents, guardians, local school staff, tutors, or mentors.  The coach can use the report to help their student stay on track and motivated.  ALVS research has show that adult engagement is a key indicator of success for online students.

How much do your courses cost?

How much do individual courses cost?

Individual courses cost $350 per semester. Materials (if required) are additional. AP Exam Review is $89 per course, or $25 when purchased with an AP course.

Do students need to purchase textbooks?

Required or optional materials are listed by course in the online catalog. If required, “Course Materials” will appear under “Course Syllabus” on the course description page. These materials can be purchased at any retail establishment.

Course Enrollment

How do students know what courses to take?

Students can talk to their guidance counselor at their school to find out what courses are needed to meet graduation requirements. Students enrolled in the ALVS Full Time program will receive guidance from our Head Counselor on their course schedule. The syllabus for each course can be found in the course catalog.

Do you have University of California approved courses?

Yes!
For California Families: For acceptance to the California UC school system, students must have completed courses approved by The University of California (UC).  The following courses are UC approved: 2016-2017 UC courses    2017-2018 UC courses

How do students register for courses?

You will receive an email with instructions after your registration is received. Students or parents can also call ALVS at 1-855-550-2547 and speak to support or one of our counselors.

When can students start the courses?

You can start our courses any time.

How long does each course last?

A fall or spring semester lasts up to 18 weeks. During the summer term (May – July), the semester course duration is accelerated, usually nine weeks.  Students are always welcome to work ahead.

Can students accelerate and finish courses faster?

Yes, with 24/7 access to the learning platform, students are able to work at their own pace. They can work ahead of schedule and are not held back by the assignment calendar. Deadlines and due dates for assignments and tests are there to keep students on track. ALVS provides students with the tools to complete their course on time and with the best chance of academic success.

Are courses different during the summer term?

Courses from our catalog are available year-round, and the course content is the same for summer school. Typically, the summer term course duration is nine weeks; however, the standard 18-week duration is available upon request.

What is the Course Structure like?

What is the workload like?

The amount of time students will spend varies by course. The time commitment is similar to what a student might spend in class at a local high school. See specific information here: Pathways.

Can students work at their own pace? Do assignments have due dates?

With 24/7 access to the learning platform, students are able to work at their own pace. They can work ahead of schedule and are not held back by the assignment calendar. Deadlines and due dates for assignments are recommended to help keep students on track.

How do courses work?

Students complete courses through an online learning platform, where they work at their own pace toward scheduled due dates. A virtual teacher is assigned to the student facilitates each course.
Students engage and interact with multimedia content, practice skills, and check their understanding through ongoing assessments. Each course contains computer-scored and teacher-scored activities and tests that are submitted electronically.
Students have 24/7 access to the course content and are not required to be online at a specific time, unless they wish to take advantage of their teacher’s posted office hours or virtual whiteboard sessions.

ALVS students can access live chat support with teachers and tutors as part of the the cost of the course.  Real-time chat is available Monday through Friday, 7am PST to 8PM EST. 

Will students have a live teacher?
