Day in the Life

One of the many benefits of the Highline Virtual Academy is the ability to set your schedule, work location and take breaks when you need to.

Students at HVA will take three classes at a time. This allows students to focus on a subject in-depth as they work through material at their own pace. This also allows students to take a year-long course per quarter. 

Below is a sample schedule a Highline Virtual Academy student may follow. Because the schedule is flexible, this is an example only. 

8:00 - 8:30 a.m.

Get Organized! 

Prepare for your day. Make sure you eat a good breakfast, check your messages and set a plan of what your want to accomplish. 

8:30-9:00 a.m.

Login for Advisory

Advisory is one of the classes with a set time. Check in with your teacher and fellow students to connect and see how everyone is doing. Talk about current events, learning plans, and look forward to career and college.

9:00 - 10:30 a.m.

Math

Get your math tools out and get ready to ADD math to your day. 

10:30-10:40 a.m.

5-minute break 

Take 5 minutes or 20. The advantage to online-learning is your ability to take breaks when you need to. 

Taking a break restores attention and relieves mental strain and fatigue.

Consider using a timer to keep you on track and on schedule. 

 

10:40 a.m. - 12:10 p.m.
