Upon enrollment in Virtual High School, students are assigned a certified, high quality teacher. Students will have the same teacher throughout the course and will be able to communicate with the teacher via the VHS email system. The teacher is available to answer questions, provide feedback, and grade assessments. The VHS teacher should be the first point of contact for any questions or concerns about the course or course content. Visit Our Educators and Teacher Spotlight sections of our website to learn more about VHS’s teachers.
In addition to the support VHS provides with its qualified teachers, each course includes access to 24/7, unlimited, on-demand, online tutoring at no additional cost to students. This service is provided by a third party, GradeSlam, which is a renowned and respected tutoring company. The tutors at GradeSlam are proficient in all subject areas offered by Virtual High School. VHS is pleased to offer this additional support to students who require additional help with their work.
How does it work?
Students will have access to GradeSlam tutoring via the learning environment. As a chat-based tutoring service, GradeSlam uses SMS texting and the GradeSlam Online Classroom to reach students. The service is unlimited, on-demand, and available 24/7. When students need assistance, they upload a file or image of the assignment to GradeSlam's chatbox. Tutors will help students learn the topic under study. Tutors do not provide students with answers. All sessions are saved on students' personal dashboards and are monitored by the teacher and VHS Administration. Students will not be permitted to utilize the tutoring service during the final exam.
