We strive to provide as many ways as possible for students to earn their high school credits. Online is one of them. Our online programs are rigorous and hold students accountable, while allowing for them to have some flexibility in their schedule.
GET AHEAD CREDITS
If students want to get ahead in credits in order to take more challenging or diverse classes in school, then they should sign up for a get-ahead class.
Common classes: Health, Economics, Government, Art
Many other classes are available upon request, with approval of administration and counseling.
Teachers are from the Vail School District. This is not a great option if you anticipate needing a lot of support in the class.
How to sign up: Get a packet from your counselor or Ms. Wahlstrand at WGHS room 1286.
Cost: $150/semester class
LAST DAY TO REGISTER FOR '16-'17 January 11, 2017
Available to SHS and WGHS students.
CREDIT RECOVERY OPTIONS
If students are lacking credits for any reason, they should take a credit recovery class.
OPTION ONE: Grad Lab
This is a class in school where students work online to reclaim credits. This is available to SHS and WGHS students. Their teachers are district teachers, so the communication and availability of tutoring/help is good.
OPTION TWO: Weekend Academy WGHS ONLY
This is an after school program that meets from 3:30-8:30pm Wednesday-Friday and 8:30am-1:30pm on Saturdays. It runs twice a year for five weeks.
Cost: $80/session **You can complete up to a full semester credit if you can finish the first half by the ninth meeting.
NEXT SESSION IS October 19-November 19 2016

We also have a full-time online option for the serious student.
Online is only an option for students who are highly motivated, self directed and do not need a lot of support in their studies. There will be an entrance interview to help determine your candidacy.
Teachers are from the Vail School District. This is not a great option if you anticipate needing a lot of support in your classes.
You must provide your own computer and internet access.
There is no cost for full-time.
