Frequently Asked Questions

Q: I hear a lot about Indiana virtual schools in the news. How is VVSA different?
A: VVSA is a stand-alone public virtual school operated by Vigo County School Corporation. The virtual schools having problems in the news are charter schools and subject to different rules. VVSA will take attendance and maintain an accurate student count. We are also not enrolling non-Vigo County students—this is simply offered as a choice to help Vigo County students fulfill their educational needs.

Q: How can we trust that a new school will be academically appropriate?
A: We’ve partnered with EdOptions Academy, a virtual school operator trusted by over 400 schools and districts. They support over 15,000 students nationwide.

Q: Does that mean there won’t be local resources?
A: Absolutely not. We have a local, dedicated principal. Mrs. Robin Smith has 11 years of administrative experience, formerly as principal at Terre Haute North. Students will have access to a dedicated school counselor and social services. Students will be tested and use lab space at Booker T. Washington High School. Again, this is a local option to serve all of Vigo County students’ needs.

Q: Does VVSA have its own handbook?
A: Yes! You may access the VVSA student handbook by clicking here.

Q: How do I apply and get more information?
A: Our Town Hall meeting will be held on Tuesday, July 30, at 6:00 p.m. at Booker T. Washington Alternative High School.   We invite you to join us for an informational meeting and an opportunity to apply to become one of our first Vigo Virtual Success Academy students starting in the 2019-2020 school year.

Individual meetings may be arranged by contacting Mrs. Robin Smith at 812-462-4427 or robin.smith@vigoschools.org.
