While many schools and families worry about the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic on student learning, students who enroll in high-quality, teacher-led online classes with VHS Learning continue to show consistent progress. During the 2021-2022 academic year, students taking VHS Learning online courses had an average course pass rate of 91%. This average pass rate has remained consistent at 91% over the last three years.
Students who took VHS Learning summer school courses for credit recovery achieved success as well. In 2022, those students who previously failed a course and retook it with VHS Learning summer school had an average pass rate of 75%.
In the 26 years that VHS Learning has been providing supplemental online high school classes, it has earned a reputation for its high standard of educational quality, which keeps schools and students coming back. In 2021-2022, VHS Learning had 18,899 course enrollments by students from more than 600 partner schools. Last year, 88% of schools previously utilizing the program continued their participation in the 2021-2022 school year. Further, 90% of administrators and 90% of site coordinators who manage the VHS Learning program at their school said they were satisfied or very satisfied with their school’s VHS Learning experience.
“Students who take VHS Learning courses gain access to the courses they need and the flexibility they want, all within a high quality, collaborative learning environment,” said Carol DeFuria, President & CEO of VHS Learning. “High student success rates — particularly in light of all of the challenges schools have faced during the pandemic — demonstrate the effectiveness of our online program and the quality and dedication of our teachers.”
VHS Learning partners with schools and districts to help them enhance their course offerings, and also works directly with parents and students who want to enroll in classes individually. With more than 300 unique online courses, including 26 Advanced Placement® (AP) courses, the program is used by schools to give students additional course and scheduling choices.
