All courses are fully aligned to Illinois State Learning Standards, are accredited by the NCAA and College Board (AP) and taught by IL certified teachers.
Original credit courses are asynchronous which means that students are not online live with their teachers but work through lessons at their own pace. Lessons include multiple models of delivery of content, targeted practice, and varying types of activities including written work, discussion boards, quizzes & tests, projects, labs and group work.
Teachers at IVSA are required to hold office hours where they are available to meet live with students; teachers post office hours in the online course.
IVSA works with the Partner School to ensure students are receiving adequate support.

Credit recovery courses are available for students in 9-12th grade and are designed for students who need to recover credit due to a previously failed course.
All courses are fully aligned to Illinois State Learning Standards, but are NOT NCAA approved. The NCAA does not approve courses which are prescriptive in nature.
Prescriptive courses allow students to ‘test-out’ of previously mastered material if they prove mastery via a pretest. If a student passes a unit level pretest, they can move on to the next unit, if not, if the pretest is not passed, the student must complete the unit material including the unit exam.
Credit recovery courses are asynchronous which means that students are not online live with their teacher but work through lessons at their own pace. Lessons include multiple models of delivery of content, quizzes & tests.
Teachers facilitate completion of credit recovery but do not provide instructional support. IVSA works with the local school to provide any additional support, however, students with IEP/504 plans who require accommodations are encouraged to take Original Credit courses.
