Why is IVDA the better choice in digital schools?
Continue Being an Indian Valley Student
If you attend IVDA, you are still an Indian Valley student since this is a credit flexibility option. That means you can play sports, join clubs, go to dances, - anything any other Indian Valley student can do. You won’t miss the fun part of the “school experience!” No regrets later that you didn’t play baseball or try out for the school play or go to the prom.
With traditional digital schools, students must withdraw from their home district in order to attend a digital or virtual school, the student then loses the opportunity to participate in school activities such as sports, clubs, dances, etc. They lose part of the “school experience.” That might not seem important now, but once it’s gone and you move on with adult life, you can never get those opportunities back again.
Receive an Indian Valley High School Diploma
The curriculum you take at IVDA will be monitored and approved by Indian Valley Schools. It will meet both Indian Valley standards and the State of Ohio Core Curriculum standards. When you graduate, your diploma will say “Indian Valley High School”, not “XYZ Virtual School” or “XYZ Digital Academy.” An Indian Valley diploma is of great value.
With traditional digital schools, when a student graduates, his/her diploma will be from some “digital academy” or “virtual school”. While the State of Ohio fully recognizes these diplomas, the truth is that unfortunately there are employers and/or colleges who secretly do not consider a “digital diploma” to be of equal value. The U.S. military has told us that they will not even accept a diploma from a digital school if that school isn’t a part of an existing traditional school.
