WHAT MAKES US DIFFERENT?

Like many online, public charter schools, SDVS tailors the coursework to fit the student’s particular needs. But what makes us different from the others?

Students have access to live, credentialed teachers, in all subject areas, via email, phone, Instant messaging, and video chat. For students who are visual learners, we offer a virtual whiteboard.

Student actors and performers will have the opportunity to receive academic credit for performance work, with the added benefit of being able to schedule their coursework to fit their busy lifestyle.
