Virtual High School Online Offerings

The mission of Virtual High School is to develop and deliver standards-based, student centered online courses to expand students’ educational opportunities and 21st century  skills and to offer professional development to teachers to expand the scope and depth  of their instructional skills. Greater New Bedford Regional Vocational Technical High School supplements our physical course offerings with rigorous VHS Online Courses. Virtual High School’s Course Catalogue contains over 200 offerings. Aside from core subjects like Math, English, Science and History, VHS gives students a chance to study topics like Environmental Science, Drama, Video Game Design and Veterinary Medicine. These courses will enable students to freely share their thoughts with students and educators all over the world and increase their knowledge of collaborative online learning (e-learning) that will be a critical component of their college life and future careers.

Classes are taught by an Online teacher are no larger than 25 students each. Students are able to access their courses 24/7 through any connection to the internet.

The GNBVT VHS Site Coordinator acts as a liaison to support students and online teachers for maximum success. All materials for the course are supplied by the online teacher and it is free to GNBVT students.  Students have the ability to take these classes as their regularly scheduled class, or for  the ambitious, as a 7th class. All classes are reflected on the official transcript and  classes are weighted according to academic level. See your guidance counselor to find  out how to sign-up.
