Homework is not part of our daily routine. We consider our program to be so personalized and engaging during the day that the need for homework is eliminated. We recognize the importance of balancing school requirements with students’ personal pursuits and family time.
Our model serves many learning profiles at all ages. There is ample room in the day for full body engagement, quiet focus time, and artistic and dramatic expression. A child’s fit is more a matter of readiness than age.
Yes, our graduates will be more than qualified. In addition to the advanced academic foundation they will gain at VGA, they will have well developed metacognitive and problem solving skills, allowing them to successfully navigate new challenges.
During their personalized learning time, students will rotate between teacher-led small group activities and online personal skill development. Total screen time will add up to about 45 minutes each morning. Students will use computers to perform research and develop projects during their S.T.R.E.A.M. afternoons, as needed.
Many learning profiles can be successfully served at VGA. We would love to have a conversation with you about your particular child’s needs to determine mutual fit.
We view our school as a community of students, faculty, and parents. At times, we will solicit the talents of our parents for specific projects. We also invite parents with special interests to discuss with us how these can be integrated into our students’ learning experience.
