What grades levels are offered at GVA?
We feature a full 1-12 curriculum with individually tailored and flexible options for our students.
What extracurricular options are available to my student?
GVA students are able to take part in all of the extracurricular programs that Garaway offers to their students. We offer a successful variety of programs and believe that involvement in extracurricular activities shapes a complete student. We want our students to be involved.
What subjects will my student be expected to study at GVA?
Our students will meet the Ohio graduation requirements just like any other Garaway student. We will also offer elective courses to enhance their learning experiences. Once again, our curriculum will be flexible and tailored to individual family values and needs.
Will my child receive a regular diploma?
Yes. GVA students will receive the same diploma as any Garaway student. Our aim with the virtual academy division of Garaway Local Schools is to customize and individualize options for our students for the best possible educational experience in a growing technological world.
What are the available educational options at GVA?
Students are now able to adjust their learning to fit their needs. We will have options available that include open-enrollment, physical learning environments, as well as credit recovery and summer school options. Additionally, we have a large variety of courses for diversified educational opportunities.
Will support be available for my child?
Garaway has a learning lab designed to assist students during school hours that is monitored by Garaway staff. Students are encouraged to take advantage of our tutoring services either virtually or in-person. These options are free of charge and available to any Garaway student.
Will my child have the opportunity to customize their learning experiences?
Absolutely. We will help to assess your child’s abilities and place them in the appropriate classes that challenge them accordingly. We aim to be flexible and accommodating for your child’s learning needs within our staffing capabilities.
Will the computer be the only source of learning?
We encourage our students to get involved in the Garaway community and our parents to be involved in their child’s learning experiences. We want the computer to be an innovative part of learning, not the absolute source of learning. We value technology as a tool to enhance learning but we also value and encourage personal relationships and social skills involved in the educational process. We encourage students to also take part in additional learning through our extracurricular options and activities available to students.
Will my child be able to work at his/her own pace?
Our program is designed to be individualized in order to meet each student’s needs. We will expect our students to keep up with assignments, but there are opportunities for flexible education. All virtual students will be monitored by a Garaway staff member with the intention of checking in on the student and to build a solid relational connection to Garaway.
