One91 Virtual Academy

One91 Virtual Academy is a new school in District 191 with 100 percent online instruction. Curriculum is designed and taught by District 191 staff. 

One91 Virtual Academy will follow the district’s unique Pathways model, which supports students in finding their passions and purpose so they are prepared for success throughout school and after graduation. It will be available for students in grades K-12, assuming enrollment is high enough to support each grade level, and open to District 191 residents and students from outside the district. 

We know that many students enjoy and thrive in an online environment. Our experience and success providing and continually improving our distance learning option, and our commitment to equitable and student-centered learning, has put us in a strong position to offer a high-quality online experience for families. 

Virtual Academy is a great option for students who: 

  • Enjoy interacting with others online
  • Work well independently 
  • Want more choice in the pacing of the class
  • Create a personalized school and study environment at home
  • Need more flexibility in instruction schedule

Instruction built for online, not just online delivery of instruction

Our distance learning experience has provided invaluable opportunities to explore, design, redesign, and expand successful online instruction. 

One91 Virtual Academy courses are created using principles of blended learning lesson design incorporating the elements of Engage-Explore-Explain-Elaborate-Evaluate, while course content still tightly adheres to essential and enduring content standards. 

Teachers will use instructional strategies that focus on interaction, inclusion and collaboration to ensure lessons are designed specifically for online learning.

As is the case across all District 191 schools, teachers will use the lens of cultural proficiency in the design of lessons, including content selection, student materials, activities, student voice, and assessment. The CPSS tools are in place district-wide and provide teachers with the framework for more equitable and inclusive classroom instruction.
