WELCOME TO VISTA VIRTUAL SCHOOL!
Our public school, based in Calgary and accredited by Alberta Education, offers online learning for students of all ages. Since 1996, we have provided top-notch education to students in grades 1 through 12, including full-time and part-time options for grades 10 to 12, adults, and international students. Our services are also available through Education Services Agreements (ESAs) to schools seeking cost-effective instruction for their students.
We are the school of choice for many families who are looking for the following:
All VVS courses are asynchronous which means that students do not attend a class at a specific time, rather they complete their assignments according to the schedule outlined by their course teachers. This allows students to work at their own pace and around other commitments, while also having an outline to help them stay organized and motivated.
As VVS is fully online, we are able to provide a safer and more inclusive environment that caters to students with mental health concerns. Students are able to work in an environment free from the anxieties associated with the traditional classroom settings. VVS also provides a full school experience to those with increased health risks.
Online learning with VVS is accessible to anyone with an internet connection.Vista Virtual School also prides itself on its Personalized Learning Program which provides a tailored curriculum to students with a variety of learning needs, including autism spectrum disorder and health conditions.
According to diploma exam results, achievement levels of VVS students are as high or higher than the provincial average. Additionally, VVS’s programming allows students to continue with their at home education for as long as it is beneficial to them. See our Adult Upgrading opportunities.
VVS can easily accommodate unusual timetable needs in ways that are costly (and in some cases impossible) for regular schools. Through an ESA, VVS provides instruction for $130/credit while divisions are funded at approximately $190/credit for high school students.
