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)
AGVA part-time students
These are students taking fewer than six (6) courses per semester through AGVA. These students are usually enrolled full-time at a different school from which they plan to graduate and receive their diplomas. Home school students would also fall into this category.
AGVA full-time students
These are students that are attending AGVA full-time (6 or more courses per semester) and plan to earn their high school diploma through AGVA. The 9th grade debuted in 2021-22 followed by the next grade each subsequent year. God willing, the first class will graduate in May 2025!
