About Us

Welcome to Vista Virtual School!

We are an accredited, public elementary, junior high, and senior high school (including adult education and upgrading) that serves residents of Alberta. Our online environment gives students flexibility in where and when they learn.

Our elementary and junior high students complete and submit work regularly to complete their full program of study within the school year. Students registering in grades 1-9 must be registered as a full-time student by the third week of the current school year; there is no part-time option.

High school students can enroll in a full-time program where they complete and submit work regularly to complete their full program of study within the school year. Our high school does operate on a semester system. This means students will complete half of their program of study in the first semester (September to January) and the other half of their program in the second semester (February to June). 

Alternatively, high school students can choose to enroll in a part-time program where they can complete a class or two at a time. With no registration deadline, students are able to enroll at any time. Part-time students are limited to a maximum of ten credits at a time.

Adults can also complete academic upgrading of high school classes to complete their high school diploma, improve high school marks, learn a new skill, or fulfill post-secondary requirements.

Like other schools, we have Student Parent Teacher Interviews, a graduation ceremony, an awards ceremony, and other interesting field trips planned throughout the year to help connect our widespread school community. Our teachers are always ready to help and expect that students will ask for assistance regarding coursework and assignments. We strive to keep students and parents informed of progress on a regular basis.

Our teachers and support staff are ready to assist you by telephone on weekdays from 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. using our toll-free number: 1-855-974-5333 x5317 or you can email us at vvsupport@pembinahills.ca.
