Answers To Your Frequently Asked Questions About VLACS!
We’ve gathered some commonly asked questions to provide you with the latest information regarding our programs. We hope you find these answers helpful as you prepare for the upcoming school year!
Q: I’ve heard you are no longer accepting students?
A: We are accepting student enrollments. Some courses have waitlists, and we are hiring and training new instructors to increase our capacity. We are experiencing an unprecedented rate of growth and may reach a limit due to budget constraints, but we are not at that point now.
Q: If there is a waitlist for a particular course, can I still enroll?
A: Yes. As seats become available, students will be assigned based on the order in which the enrollment was received.
Q: How long will it take before a waitlisted course is opened?
A: It’s hard to know given the historic number of enrollment requests we are processing. Please know that we are working hard to meet the needs of students.
Q: What if a course enrollment is not available on the opening day at my local school?
A: Please contact your local school for an answer to this question. One option is that students can work at an accelerated rate in courses in which they are enrolled while waiting for seats to open in another course.
Q: Are you hiring new instructors to expand your capacity?
A: Yes, we have hired 60 new instructors since July 1, and we are now advertising for another group of elementary, middle, and high school instructors.
Q: Is there a limit to the number of courses that a student who is full-time at another school or homeschooled can complete at VLACS?
A: Yes, part-time VLACS students (i.e., students not enrolled as VLACS full-time students) may earn up to six credits between July 1 and June 30.
Q: Does VLACS follow a traditional academic year calendar?
A: No, students may enroll in a course at any time, can work throughout the year, and progress at a pace that meets their academic needs.
Q: Can students withdraw from a VLACS course?
