Over the past year, we recognized that many students thrive in a virtual learning environment.  As we work to return to school in-person, we feel it is important to provide these learners with an option that best fits their learning style.  

Learners enrolled in our 2021-2022 Deeper Learning Virtual Academy will:
  • Receive tuition-free online instruction.  
  • Access engaging and empowering virtual learning opportunities with an emphasis on cross-curricular projects.
  • Receive quarterly opportunities to spend time in one of our school buildings to access the equipment needed to create and build projects.  
  • Receive a computer device and learning materials
  • Have the ability to participate in co-curricular activities and events sponsored by the assigned neighborhood school.
Information Night
“We really want families to learn  more about this opportunity, so we’re holding a Family Information Night,” explains Director of Leadership and Learning, Deidre Roemer. “We are looking to gauge interest and answer questions or concerns. We hope families will visit with us on Zoom to learn more about our online school.”

Interest Survey
If families are interested in having their child(ren) attend school virtually, they should complete the 
Deeper Learning Virtual Academy Interest Survey.  “Answering the survey is not a commitment, it is designed to help us gauge interest and plan for fall enrollment,” explains Roemer. “We believe our Deeper Learning Virtual Academy will provide learners with online experiences that build community and empower them to live life on their own terms.”
