Online High School Allows Students to Get Back on Track
LAS VEGAS–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Nevada
Passport Academy (NVPA), a tuition-free online public high school
for under-credited students, is now accepting enrollment applications
for the 2017-18 school year. NVPA is designed to help students under the
age of 21 who haven’t finished their high school education get back on
track and earn a diploma.
NVPA combines online coursework with classroom work taught by certified
teachers to provide a unique, individualized learning experience for
each student. Flexible hours mean that school can be adapted to the
student’s schedule, situation and life, allowing greater opportunities
for the future.
“Once you begin at NVPA, you enroll in more than a school,” said Danny
Diamond, head of school at Nevada Passport Academy. “Walking through our
virtual doors, you will immediately see a school devoted to our
students. No matter what’s gotten in your way, at NVPA we’ll work with
you to create and individualized plan for both high school and post-high
school success – to college, to a vocational program or straight to a
career that fits who you are.”
NVPA offers classes in core academic subjects, including English, math,
science and history. Students also have access to a comprehensive
catalog of elective courses that include physical education, health,
personal finance and world languages.
Class sizes are small and will vary based on student needs, as
determined by regular assessments. Students who need more support in
mastering a subject will receive that support while more advanced
students are challenged to take their learning further. While the pace
of the program is flexible, important benchmarks must be reached within
certain timeframes, including state/school-required assessments every
year and demonstration of academic gains each semester. Workshops,
ongoing development and extra instructional tutoring are available to
assist students in reaching these benchmarks.
