School Notes:

What sets us apart from other online schools? Our creative flexible approach, our emphasis on peace, justice, diversity and sustainability. We recognize students as individuals with unique needs, interests, andlearning styles. We adapt our homeschool curriculum to our students, rather than forcing students to adapt to the curriculum. We empower our students to pursue their future goals in a way that enables them to prepare for college while building on their strengths and talents and staying true to who they are. We nurture and protect the passion and enthusiasm for creating a better world inherent in so many young people. We help our students lead authentic and meaningful lives, so they can leave school feeling confident in their ability to make an impact on the world around them.

School Reviews

I can''t say enough about GVS to let the world know how future-altering it would be to experience the curriculum with others. It doesn''t just benefit the child - it benefits the adult going through the process with them. I don''t like to say "teacher and student" now, because this was such a co-learning, collaborative experience. It was in alignment with the values we have as a family and it addressed nuances of my children''s personal path to a value system. If your child finishes out high school with the Peace and Diversity courses under their belt, they are prepared to go out and make the world a better place! Both of my children elected to go to university after their GVS studies and this school has made them enter with an awareness of the world around them and their part in that microcosm that the average college student struggles to understand. Parents be informed: this is not an internet-learning experience only. This is a hands-on, fully participatory journey through learning for everyone involved!
