Defining Elements of the Program
Venture Online realizes that certain key factors are essential in order to achieve academic success:
Single Subject and Multiple Subject Credentialed Teachers: Venture Online provides High School students with highly qualified single subject credentialed teachers in Math, Science, Social Science, and English in grades 9-12. Our K-8 students are supported by multiple subject credentialed teachers. All our students have opportunities for daily live interaction and/or instruction sessions with grade-level and subject area teachers (schedules vary by grade). Teachers are also available for additional support through daily office hours.
Use of Learning Styles: We recognize that all students have a unique learning style, therefore, we provide parents and our K-8 students with an opportunity to explore how students learn best through the use of a learning style profile. The information provides us all with a wealth of knowledge for student success!
Personalized Learning Plans: Each student has a Teacher of Record they meet with regularly one-on-one. Taking into account the student’s future plans, academic history of grades and credits, post-graduate plans, as well as the student’s personal interests, the teacher creates a personalized plan for each student. The result is a comprehensive educational plan that can be completed anywhere, anytime and with full academic support to maximize student success.
The Community is our Classroom: We offer a variety of elective courses based on your student’s individual interests and skills that can be completed by your child in your local community. We encourage dual enrollment during high school so that students can accelerate their enrollment into college as well as earn credit in high school. In addition, offering online articulated college courses allows our program the necessary flexibility while students are pursuing their personal dreams and interests.
Parent/Student/Teacher Collaboration: Parents are vital to our student’s success and we not only encourage but expect their participation. At Venture we believe that we are a team and that all participants have a shared responsibility for the success of every student; Student, Parent, Teachers, and Director. In any distance learning environment, communication is essential for the best result and experience. Our teachers and staff are available by multiple means of technology to connect with our students and parents.
Bringing our Distance Learning Together: At Venture we understand that while you may have a need for virtual learning, you also have a need for connection. Through Homerooms, virtual events, optional in person field trips and more we are dedicated to bringing our Venture community together. Our culture is built around providing opportunities for our students, parents, teachers and staff to get plugged into our community and go through this journey together!
