Badges recognize students’ skills in areas that have career-related designations. For example, students can earn badges in nursing, entrepreneurship, and robotics, among others. With badges, students can display the knowledge and experience they have acquired that translates to a target career path demanding their qualifications. VLACS continues to issue credit for the completion of courses. The badge system is new and is a career-related designation. Badges will not be reported on a student's transcript. For the most current information on badges, please see the VLACS Badges page or watch the video.
