Vista Virtual School offers print-based and some online courses to students in grades 1-9. Students in grades 10-12 are offered online courses. Teachers can make available PDFs of modules and assignment books for students whose Internet connection is not adequate.
Students are responsible for the same content and skills as students are in any other accredited Alberta school. Senior High students are prepared to write Provincial Diploma Examinations and graduate with an Alberta High School Diploma. Marks are reported to Alberta Education and appear on Alberta Education transcripts.
Although Vista Virtual School students study at home, they are not home education students as defined by Alberta Education. Vista Virtual School provides instructional materials, course resources, and teacher support. Students must supply their own computers and software.
Beginning in the 2017-2018 school year there will be no instructional/educational fees for full-time students. All required materials supplied to our full-time students are the property of Vista Virtual School. By July 31st, return all materials to Vista Virtual School in reusable condition to avoid being invoiced. Reusable condition is determined at the discretion of Vista Virtual School. The student/parent/guardian is responsible for all return shipping costs when returning materials.
