Discover One91 Virtual Academy
Students in the online school will have the opportunity to engage in the Arts, Communication, Information Technology pathway courses for 2021-2022 and we look forward to continuing to develop online pathway options in the future.
Online elementary students will have learning opportunities aligned with all of our pathways and will allow young scholars to explore a variety of themes and topics. Through embedded activities, events, and targeted exposure to all four pathways, our online elementary students will learn about the world through music, computer programming, virtual field trips to theaters and zoos, and project-based activities designed to spark new curiosities.
Our online middle school students are in a time of great discovery of who they are and of the world. We know middle school students thrive when their unique social-emotional needs and young adolescent culture is supported. Our middle school pathways alignment is designed around learning, leadership and culture, fueling the passions and interests of our students. Whether in person or through our online school, middle school students will engage in these areas to explore academic interests, develop leadership skills, and engage in strategic social-emotional growth and support.
At the high school level, students can choose to attend One91 Virtual Academy full time, or take some courses online while attending Burnsville High School or Burnsville Alternative High School.
The high school pathway experience allows for flexibility for students as they engage and participate in high school courses. Students are not required to focus on a singular pathway but those students who have found an area of high interest can take a sequence of courses. Courses are layered to provide students with the skill development needed to successfully earn the industry-recognized credentials.
