Online Learning

NVCA High School Online Information 

North Valley Christian Academy is a private Christian school located in the northern Phoenix area. NVCA’s campus includes students from preschool through high school. 

NVCA also provides academic courses online for those who cannot attend classes on their campus. The online courses are identical to the ground’s courses (courses on the campus) in content. The assignments and study material are the same with significant teacher interaction with students in both settings.   

NVCA currently offers some online courses and continues to develop courses to add to the existing list. NVCA online courses are accredited, follow the state standards and contain a Bible worldview for each subject. Each course has been developed and is taught by NVCA’s faculty.  

These courses are designed to last between 16-18 weeks. The classes have weekly objectives, assignments, quizzes and tests.  

These classes incorporate interaction between the teachers and students as well as student to student. In some cases, the online student will interact with students who are taking the same course on the NVCA campus.  

Development  

A plan has been implemented to have all courses completed by the fall of 2022 to enable a student to be able to graduate from high school by taking only online courses.  

The first step is to complete all Freshman courses by the fall semester of 2020; all Sophomore courses completed by the fall of 2021 and all Junior and Senior courses completed by the fall of 2022.  

The plan also includes reviewing and updating each course every two or three years. To ensure quality and to implement any changes in state standards. 

The development costs of the first set of online courses were covered by donations specifically designated for online course development. Continued developmental and marketing costs will be offset by the enrollment of online students and further contributions
