We are an online homeschool course co-op. Think of it as your local co-op gone electronic with no geographical borders. It is all-volunteer run and donation supported so that we can offer the classes tuition-free.
We offer at your own pace and live online classes.
Enrollment in AYOP classes occurs all year long. There are no seating limits (except for the Dave Ramsey classes-we have a limited amount of seats available in them and cannot get more.)
Classes have a combination of automatic computer grading by Moodle and manual grading by the parents of the students taking the classes. Science lab grading is available ONLY in the current school year edition. We do not continue to grade in prior year courses once the new editions are up. To ensure you get the latest edition of courses, wait to enroll in each individual quarter or course until you are ready to use it. Some classes go through frequent upgrades.
Certain classes (such as Dave Ramsey and resources published by Bright Ideas Press) involve co-op fees to use their resources. These are not costs that go to VHSG, but small fees are collected that go to the publisher to allow us to offer the classes. In those classes, the enrollment is first come, first serve by payment rather than lottery. Details will be in the Parent Pre-Enrollment Course when enrollment opens.
