Viking Virtual Academy
The VVA is all about meeting the individual needs of each student. You will stay in close contact with your teachers and principals. You start the VVA by meeting with your guidance counselor or a principal. We will provide you with an overview of the programs. If students choose to go full cyber, then they will meet regularly with VVA staff to monitor progress. The biggest advantage for VVA students as opposed to other cyber schools is that they remain GLENDALE students and have the added ability to receive extra support from Glendale teachers if it is needed. Each elementary student is assigned a Glendale homeroom teacher who remains their point of contact for any academic concerns and who will keep families informed of any extra events that a VVA student can attend such as school pictures, guest speakers, assemblies, field trips, etc. Each high school students has the ability to get additional support from any subject teacher if needed. This is above and beyond the VVA teacher they are assigned to.

"I enjoy doing cyber school because I can do it on my own time and my own pace. I like how I can do it when I’m sick or when the other kids don’t have school. I definitely believe my grades have improved by doing cyber. My attitude has gotten a lot better towards school. I don’t have to worry about missing the bus, getting bullied, trying to fit in, or being late to class. I also feel really comfortable asking for help because I’m not in front of lots other kids, the teachers reply back with clear answers, and every time I get messages back they praise me for my work. This all makes me feel better about myself. I really enjoy doing cyber school!"

"CIOLA's program has been incredible for our students. For our students who need or prefer an online learning option, CIOLA has allowed us to offer a quality option that does not require students to give up earning a West Branch diploma. Our student success rates with CAIOLA's program have been incredible. We went from having a success rate well under 50% to well over 80% in just one school year. Students enjoy the program and are motivated to learn. I would recommend CIOLA's program to any district looking for a way to meet the needs of online learners."
