CT Virtual Learning Courses are a representation of the country's best online courseware providers.
The CT Virtual Learning Center has a variety of options for the diverse needs of CT's High School students. From Credit Recovery and full High School courses, available on a flexible enrollment basis, to Advanced Placement and World Languages with fixed start and end dates, all of our courses are taught by CT certified teachers.
High School Courses are fully interactive with the same rigor and expectations as face to face courses and contain all of the activities, lessons, assignments and assessments to align with state, national and College Board requirements and standards. The Courses are semester based and most of them contain 16 weeks of covered material. A full year course contains 32 weeks of covered material. These courses are offered on a flexible schedule, and students may complete them as quickly as they are able - but are given up to 20 weeks per semester based course.
Advanced Placement course for students that may not have access to such opportunities as a part of their regular High School schedules. These will be available as full year or half year courses. Because Advanced Placement courses should be completed prior to the exam dates, these courses have strict beginning and end dates. Students will be expected to begin working on the first week of class and to be actively working weekly in order to finish the course. Prerequisites must be strictly adhered to.
World Languages. These are full-year 32 week curriculums with strict beginning and ending dates. Students will be expected to begin working on the first week of class and to be actively working weekly in order to finish the course. Prerequisites must be strictly adhered to. Assessments are available for student wishing to enter year 2 that did not take year one online with CT Virtual Learning.
Credit Recovery Courses are aligned with state standards and have been designed for students that did not pass a course initially but learned enough to make a complete repetition of the course unnecessary. In these courses, students can test out of material they have already learned and focus on what they need to demonstrate achievement of essential content standards. The courses operate on a diagnostic driven model to validate comprehension, assess strengths and weakness and allow students to repeat or proceed through lessons as needed. Screen readers to reinforce concepts with audio and video and well as English Language Learner supports have been added. Offered on a flexible schedule, students may complete them as quickly as they are able - but are given up to 10 weeks per semester based course.
ALL course curriculums have been reviewed and approved by the CT State Department of Education. All courses have been approved by the NCAA, simply submit their titles along with the courseware developer name in your application.
All Advanced Placement courses are College Board approved.
