“As in all of our courses, students who take flexible courses will receive extensive support from teachers. VHS Learning teachers interact with students in asynchronous discussions, organize weekly office hours and invite students to monthly one-on-one progress meetings,” DeFuria continued. “This new course model is part of our mission to equip schools with the best teacher-led online learning programs in the industry and to provide students with a wide choice of courses that prepare them for college, the careers and beyond.”
