Louisiana Virtual Charter Academy Reviews

My experience at LAVCA has been a mix of good and bad, but mostly good. With this school, you have the responsibility of being homeschooled and completing your work on your own, which gives us students great self discipline. But since it’s also a public school, you are not completely left to your own devices. Help is there if you need it. It is a very flexible school! It definitely helps since I have family that lives across the country. But since it is still a public school, sometimes you cannot manage the flexibility. The only problems I have ever had, which can be often, is miscommunication with my teachers as we mostly communicate via email and that if you do not have a WiFi connection, you cannot do school. If you can’t do school, you risk falling behind, and once you fall behind, it’s very hard to catch up because of the work load of the school.

The benefits of virtual learning are substantial. Flexible scheduling, fast track courses and dual enrollment classes are a few of the core benefits that are allowing me to accomplish my goals.
Louisiana Virtual Charter Academy has the potential to become an excellent school by improving its communication skills and alleviating the burden of mandatory class connects for advanced students.
Overall, my experience with Louisiana Virtual Charter Academy is very good.
What I like about Louisiana Virtual Charter Academy is the rigorous curriculum and flexible schedule. If I need to I can rearrange when and where I do my schoolwork. This comes in great handy for participating in church service, activities such as sports, and, when I get one, a job. I can have the flexibility I need without sacrificing the quality of my education. However, one huge drawback has been socialization. I am not around people my own age 7-9 hours a day as compared to someone in a brick-and-mortar high school. I haven't had the opportunities to make friends or learn even the most basic social skills. I can guarantee I wouldn't be the socially anxious or shy woman I am today if I was in a normal high school.
