There are three different programs to choose from: All three programs are UC-approved, WASC accredited, and NCAA-approved.

In-Person Main Independent Study

We offer a nontraditional educational program that allows students to advance through high school at their own pace, whether that be for credit recovery, acceleration, or a more flexible schedule. The VCIS staff understands the importance of providing assistance for all academic, language, and developmental (ie. emotional and social) levels of our learners.

In-Person Online Learning

Students enrolled in our online program (9-12) have access to their coursework anywhere internet access is available. Each student is assigned a supervising teacher to oversee their educational progress, provide support, and assign courses.  Students must attend a face-to-face meeting every week with their supervising teacher. Additional time is required for students to complete assessments, wet labs, and project reviews while on campus. VCIS provides a student area to work and receive extra support when needed. Typically, online students need to plan to be on campus a minimum of 2-hours each week.

VLP (Virtual Learning Program)        

Students enrolled in our VLP program (9-12) have access to their coursework anywhere internet access is available. Each student is assigned a supervising teacher to oversee their educational progress, provide support, and assign courses.  Students meet with their supervising teacher every week via zoom. All VLP students are expected to attend mandatory testing dates in-person onsite.

 
VCIS is home to the only blended learning program in Tulare County.  We offer a full spectrum of independent study courses plus a comprehensive online curriculum.
