Shanghai Livingston American School (LAS) is now accepting students for its first Virtual Learning Academy, an online alternative to the traditional classroom.

This program is being developed to benefit students who might not be able to continue their studies at LAS or other schools due to conflicting schedules in their home countries. It also assists students who want to add to or accelerate their learning and provide flexibility and support for home-schooled students. Meanwhile, it offers an opportunity for international students to study an American curriculum delivered by highly skilled Western educators.

las_biology-sThe Virtual Learning Academy offers choices in all the core subject areas: English/ESL, Math, Science, and History, as well as numerous electives. It provides rigorous online courses throughout the year.

Courses are accessible 24/7. All instructors are certified in their subject areas and possess advanced degrees. Course materials, assignments, and student responses are delivered via ICA (Internet Classroom Assistant) and during weekly Skype seminars. Enrollment is open now, and courses can be taken for credit or non-credit.   Students may take up to 3 courses per module.
