Virtual Program Description

Leman Virtual Academy

Leman Virtual Academy uses a synchronous and asynchronous approach to learning.

We offer the same rigorous instruction and curriculum that is offered at our brick and mortar campuses but in the virtual setting.

Weekly assignments for all grades are posted in Schoology by 8 am each Monday morning. Aside from the live class meeting times, it is up to the scholar and the family to plan his/her academic week. We do however, have suggested schedules by grade in order for families to get all assignments completed before the end of the week. Having a full week to complete assignments allows families and scholars the flexibility to plan their schedules, but also requires discipline.

All assignments are due by 11:59 Sunday night, giving the scholars a full seven days to complete all assignments.
