Zion Lutheran School is planning to start on online high school starting in September of 2019. Our curriculum will be the publicly available Washington Virtual Academy (WAVA) curriculum. Our classes will meet in our computer lab, which, along with the attached breakout room will become our high school campus.

Students will enroll in WAVA, and then use our facilities and our computers, and will be kept on track through one of our teachers, who will be their official “learning coach”. This program is tuition-free and requires a $6000/year facilities and coaching fee.

The WAVA curriculum includes live online chats, prerecorded videos, and pre-made demonstrations. It also includes some science labs, which are shipped to the student at no cost.

Students attend all day Monday through Friday. We are looking to add high school accreditation for our school so that we can offer accredited classes to supplement the WAVA curriculum.

You’re a perfect fit for this program if any of the following apply:
1. You believe in our school and desire a Lutheran education—this curriculum is not explicitly Lutheran, but will be staffed by trained Lutheran teachers, using our facilities on our campus. Students will be invited to participate in chapel and we’ll look to add Lutheran religion classes in the near future.

2. You may not prosper in a traditional high school setting. Our small size will be great for kids who will shy away from large public schools.

3. You are not sufficiently self-motivated to work alone, and who desire some socialization. Many WAVA students work from home, but suffer from lack of motivation and socialization.
