Implementation Q & A

When you first implemented blended learning, why did you choose that particular model? (has your model changed? why?)


We moved from more of a traditional virtual school model to customized learning with the help of a Next Generation Learning Challenge grant in 2013.

What was one of your biggest challenges when going blended, and how did you overcome it?


Communicating with the vast array of stakeholders at the state and local levels.

What's the one piece of advice you'd give to emerging blended-learning programs?


Think beyond current models to find ways to put students in charge of their learning.

School Overview

At VLACS, learning is not restricted by location, time or a one-size-fits-all curriculum. Students have the option to select one of many flexible learning paths or to combine opportunities into a customized learning program. Our customized learning model allows students to learn in any location (school, home, business, while traveling, etc.), to create a schedule to meet individual needs, and to master competencies via multiple pathways (courses, projects, teams, experiences, or college).

VLACS enrolls both part-time and full-time students in grades 6-12. Part-time students are typically enrolled in another school, home educated, or part of some other alternative program. Full-time students need to complete the admissions process. Students admitted to the full time program will be pursuing a VLACS diploma that is approved by the New Hampshire Department of Education. Students who have earned a diploma or are over the age of 21 may enroll in adult education offerings.
