Amazing Grace Virtual Academy
Amazing Grace Virtual Academy (AGVA), formerly known as ALHS Online (ALHSO) is an accredited online service provider and virtual school.
AGVA has two primary purposes.
Offer online courses that WELS/ELS schools can use to expand the curricular offerings available to their students. (AGVA part-time students)
Offer a complete online curriculum that can lead to a high school diploma. (AGVA full-time students)
Through ALHS Online, schools can share quality online courses and qualified instructors, thus strengthening each school’s individual program of instruction and curriculum. Public and home school students can also enroll in courses to supplement their education.
Philosophy of Amazing Grace Virtual Academy
The purpose of AGVA is to support, not supplant, current WELS/ELS schools. Through AGVA, WELS/ELS schools can share quality online courses and qualified instructors, thus strengthening each school’s individual program of instruction and curriculum. Public and home school students can also enroll in courses to supplement their education.
AGVA also exists to provide the option of a Christ-centered high school education for students not able to attend a traditional WELS/ELS high school.
This online program will also give teachers who are not serving as a called teacher in a Lutheran school the opportunity to serve their Lord, high school students, and the church by teaching online courses.
