High School Credit Online: Students choose to study with Jewish Virtual High School (JVHS) for a variety of reasons. Perhaps they need to make up credits due to circumstances beyond their control, or perhaps they’re interested in studying subjects related to their cultural background that are not offered in regular brick and mortar high schools. Whatever the reason JVHS makes it easy and affordable to obtain high school credit by studying online.
Online learning is a perfect fit for today’s young people who’ve grown up with the Internet and spend hours every day connecting with friends and family through various social media outlets. This is perhaps the first generation truly ready and able to move beyond the bounds of the traditional high school environment and take advantage of the many benefits of online learning, including:
At JVHS we are committed to extending the educational horizon for Jewish high school students by providing them with a range of courses that will allow them to achieve high school credit online. These courses include topics of particular interest to Jewish students such as Israel Advocacy and Education; subjects that are not available to them in traditional high school settings yet which are in full compliance with Ontario Secondary School Diploma (OSSD) requirements.
Online Support and Accountability
Merely offering online courses of study would be pointless if we did not also offer robust support for our online students. As such JVHS allows students to peruse the biographical and professional backgrounds of our teachers and select the one they feel would be the best match for them. Once the teacher has been selected students are provided with their email address and are encouraged to stay in contact throughout the duration of their studies. In the unlikely event serious issues arise students are also provided the phone number and email of our principal.
Why Choose Jewish Virtual High School?
JVHS is the first online Jewish school offering high school credit online. The goal is to provide a solid educational and cultural foundation Jewish students can build upon as they move into the world at large in later years.
