Opening Fall 2021 to Students in 6th-12th Grade
The virtual academy is a flexible learning model that provides opportunities for self-paced learning. Instruction is centered around rigorous learning and high expectations implementing a guaranteed and viable curriculum, including academic and social emotional skills.
Our community is focused on building relationships with students and families with face-to-face experiences to engage students in social emotional support. We are committed to delivering on our Highline Promise to know all students by name, strength and need. This includes academic and social emotional skills.
Students who thrive in independent and online learning will benefit from Highline Virtual Academy.
Student learning will provide flexible and a self-paced model. To do this, students will engage in online learning across all middle and high school content areas with rigorous and state-aligned standards.
Student work will be graded by trained teaching staff, and families will receive progress reports throughout the academic year. Students who fulfill graduate requirements will earn a diploma from Highline Virtual Academy.
We look forward to celebrating our graduates in-person this year. Please see the updated 2021 graduation schedule, which includes ceremonies at Highline Memorial Stadium and the Performing Arts Center. Each graduate will be allotted two guest tickets. Seating will be socially distanced and other safety protocols will be in place. All graduations will also be live-streamed.
Starting April 19, middle and high school students will have the option of hybrid learning. In hybrid, students will attend school in person two full days per week, rotating through classes in a three-period day. Hybrid learning is not mandatory. Students may opt to remain in distance learning through the end of the school year.
We will begin hybrid learning for grades 6-12 on Monday, April 19. Governor Inslee has ordered that all public schools provide both remote and in-person options for all students K-12 by that date. Families will choose to opt-in to hybrid learning or remain in fully remote learning.
We have space available in our new Highline Virtual Academy. Highline Virtual Academy is launching this fall for students in 6th through 12th grades. The academy will be the only all-remote option in the 2021-22 school year and moving forward. We invite you to apply through SchoolMint.
