Instruction built for online, not just online delivery of instruction

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

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

Teachers 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 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. 


Virtual Academy is a great option for students who:

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

Elementary School

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. 

Middle School

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. 

High School

By the time students enter high school, they’ve done meaningful self-discovery and can engage in the critical thinking needed to put action to their desires. With a host of opportunities, including exposure to career possibilities, experiential learning, mentorship, career path experts and thorough training, students in online high school can independently move on to the next step with an incredible array of experiences. But most importantly, they’ll be equipped with tools to navigate their journey, no matter what life throws their way.
