Students who wish to enroll in GVA while attending a Peninsula School District high school will complete the Initial Individualized Learning Plan in their high school counselor’s office. The counselor, parent, and student must sign this plan.  

The plan then goes to the high school registrar who puts the course(s) in the student’s schedule. The high school registrar will send the Initial Learning Plan to the GVA registrar to be processed. 

What is a Student Learning Plan (SLP)?

All students sign Student Learning Plans (SLPs), which contain course expectations and learning goals. Our student learning plans tie the following basic set of expectations to each course's syllabus, specific learning targets and assessments.

Individual plans will vary depending on starting and ending dates as well as individualized needs or circumstances. In addition, these plans will be modified through an intervention plan if the mentor determines that the student is not making adequate monthly progress. 

Please contact your school counselor to begin registration in GVA and complete your SLP for enrollment.

Part-Time Students

We offer an alternative to brick-and-mortar classes in a traditional high school. Students enter our program for a variety of reasons. The majority of our students take one or two online classes as part of their regular high school schedule. To enroll, part-time students first connect with their school counselor to complete a Student Learning Plan.  

Full-Time Students

Full-time students can participate in extracurricular activities, including athletics, music, drama, art, and hands-on technical classes at their home high school.

Full-time students are enrolled in a mandatory weekly Advisory class. This class serves as a homeroom and students will participate in goal-setting and communication, and completing lessons in social emotional learning.
