The Ver­mont Vir­tual Learn­ing Coop­er­a­tive works with Ver­mont schools to facil­i­tate online courses for stu­dents statewide. Our goal is to over­come the three most com­mon bar­ri­ers that pre­vent stu­dents from tak­ing the courses they want or need in schools. These bar­ri­ers are avail­abil­ity of courses, acces­si­bil­ity to courses and the flex­i­bil­ity of your child’s edu­ca­tion. 

For exam­ple, is your child inter­ested in tak­ing a course that is not avail­able at his/her school? Is there a course that your child wants to take but can­not be accessed locally because he/she is required to take a dif­fer­ent class at the same time? VTVLC finds the course a student wants to take from another Ver­mont school that offers that course online and works with your child’s school to give access to the course dur­ing a time that works for your child. All courses offered by VTVLC online are acces­si­ble from any­where, any­time. Whether your child learns best at 1 am or 1 pm, at school or at home, your child’s online courses are only a click away.

VTVLC is a col­lab­o­ra­tive effort of Ver­mont schools to pro­vide courses and pro­grams to Ver­mont stu­dents. We are a sup­ple­men­tal pro­gram, not a diploma grant­ing insti­tu­tion. All of our courses are fully online, and accred­ited by the Ver­mont part­ner schools that offers the courses. Our courses meet or exceed national standards.

Is VTVLC accredited?

VTVLC works under a cooperative model. Each course is offered by a Ver­mont pub­lic / approved independent school, each school is accred­ited inde­pen­dently through (primarily) NEASC. The course cur­ricu­lum is licensed from Florida Vir­tual School which is accred­ited by two major agen­cies: The South­ern Asso­ci­a­tion of Col­leges and Schools (SACS) and The Com­mis­sion on Inter­na­tional and Trans-​Regional Accreditation.

VTVLC does not cur­rently grant a diploma. Instead, cred­its are trans­ferred back to the student’s local school and count toward their grad­u­a­tion require­ments.
