The Reach Ahead program is for elementary students who wish to take high school courses. The principal of the studentís elementary school, together with the principal of VHS and the studentís parent, will decide if it is appropriate for the student to enrol in high school courses. VHS adheres to all standard school practices in accommodating a Reach Ahead student by recording and granting achievement as necessary. Students are typically eligible for Reach Ahead during the Grade 8 school year or the summer before Grade 9, as outlined in the Ontario Schools: Policy and Program Requirements section 18.104.22.168.
Those wishing to participate in the Reach Ahead process may complete an enrolment request and return it by email to the appropriate guidance coordinator for review and approval. Approval from Guidance and the principal of Virtual High School must be received prior to registration.
