Will students in the Virtual Academy get one-on-one appointments with teachers or meet in virtual classrooms in larger groups?
All students in the Virtual Academy will participate in a personalized blend of the following: one-on-one appointments, small group sessions, daily/weekly classes. The lengths of meetings, small groups, and classes will vary based on grade level. All students will have assigned work/online sessions every school day.
What curriculum will be used in the Virtual Academy?
The GCC Virtual Academy will provide all required standards-based curriculum to our students just like all other GCC schools. We will utilize a blend of SAVVAS, Edgenuity, and traditional GCC board approved curriculum, depending on the course and grade level.
Will there be a focus on Social-Emotional Learning (SEL) in the Virtual Academy? 
Yes, all grade levels will have SEL incorporated into their weekly learning. Some grades will have a specific SEL focused curriculum while others will have key SEL components built into weekly meetings and classes. Throughout GCC we use a program called Capturing Kids’ Hearts to build school culture, meet students' SEL needs, and encourage self-management.
