The Highline Virtual Academy is a flexible learning model that provides opportunities for self-paced learning. Instruction is centered around rigorous learning and high expectations implementing a guaranteed and viable curriculum, including academic and social emotional skills.
Our community is focused on building relationships with students and families with face-to-face experiences to engage students in social emotional support. We are committed to delivering on our Highline Promise to know all students by name, strength and need. This includes academic and social emotional skills.
The Highline Virtual Academy will be the only all-remote option for students in grades 6-12 in the 2021-22 school year and moving forward. Highline Virtual Academy is launching Fall 2021--we invite you to apply through SchoolMint.
