High School Part Time Program
Are you looking to supplement your face-to-face learning experience with
core or elective courses? AVA provides online course options that can be
taken during the day. APS students who take AVA online courses are able
to maximize their time during the semester to complete their required
curriculum. Students receive support from certified teachers via the Live
Virtual Learning Center during and beyond the day.
Middle School Part Time Program
Middle school students can take advanced middle school courses and high school courses online.
Credit Recovery Courses
Provides an opportunity for students to retake a high school course in which he/she previously was not academically successful in earning credit towards graduation. The AVA Credit Recovery program allows students to gain mastery in standards in which they are deficient. Students are provided with a pre-assessment and then provided instruction based on standards that have not been mastered. AVA Credit Recovery students will be assigned a content teacher, and if working during the school day, students will have access to a virtual classroom with a content teacher for questions. Once students complete the virtual instructional lesson, they take a post-test in which they must achieve 70% mastery to move forward to the next lesson without being prompted to use additional attempts. Upon earning a passing grade, students are awarded credit for the course. Note: For this option, student's previous final grade of 69% or below must be posted to their transcript before registering.
Note: **Per NCAA guidelines, student athletes CANNOT participate in the Credit Recovery program.
Initial Credit Courses
AVA Initial Credit is for students who are taking middle and high school courses for the first time or student-athletes who need to retake a course (AVA Initial Credit courses are NCAA approved). AVA courses are full semester-long courses and are available to ALL Atlanta Public School middle and high school students. AVA initial credit courses are a part of a student’s regular schedule in his or her local school.
AVA Initial Credit is also an option for students interested in getting ahead. The AVA Initial Credit program provides a similar experience to students face-to-face classroom experience since students have an assigned content teacher for their course. Students also have access to a virtual classroom that includes video capabilities, a whiteboard, computer sharing and chat capabilities. Depending on their assigned course, students taking Initial Credit courses can access their teacher for questions during the school day or after school hours.
AVA Unit Recovery (AVA UR) provides students an opportunity to master the content and recover a unit or lesson within the current Fall and Spring semesters. Students can recover unlimited units in multiple courses at the same time. Unit Recovery is available while taking a course at the student's home school. Classroom teachers assign students virtual units to complete during non-school hours. The previous failed unit grade will be replaced by the recovered unit grade for the course.
All students enrolled in Atlanta Public Schools can recover units and/or lessons. However, no individual units can be recovered before or after the current semester. If a student is taking Algebra I during this Semester, this student can only recover units for Algebra I during this Semester.
