Courses, Projects, and Experiences are alternative ways for students to learn, meet competencies, and earn credit toward graduation. Courses are organized by traditional subject areas. Projects offer students the chance to learn more independently and demonstrate mastery less traditionally. Experiences allow students to work with a VLACS instructor to design an experience that allows them to demonstrate mastery. Students can meet competencies through a single or combination of learning methods: courses, projects, or experiences. Regardless of the method, students and their families work closely with a VLACS instructor. For more information, see the Curriculum page or ontact firstname.lastname@example.org.
