We are an online school, using online tools, to promote learning and support academic success.
The Venture Online Program is ideal for students who possess computer skills and are self-motivated. It is an independent study program providing students with full teacher support from single-subject and multiple-subject credentialed teachers.
Students retrieve weekly coursework via Canvas (our Online Learning Management System) and complete assignments at a flexible pace, according to the due dates provided. A teacher of record is available to answer questions during school hours via email, Google hangout, and Google chat.
Students are required to attend homeroom every Monday and a minimum of two live sessions per course per Sprint. Students who are not making adequate progress are required to attend all live sessions until they are making adequate progress.
Lesson plans, online courses, books, and a Chromebook are provided to Venture students while enrolled in the program. Many other opportunities, such as field trips, learning center classes, and funds for lessons through approved vendors, are included.
