Enrolled families may request a curriculum conference if they need assistance creating a high school plan of study. Vanguard offers a yearly transcript workshop to enrolled families to assist with making a plan of study and a high school transcript.

High School students may view courses by subject: electives, English/Language Arts, History, foreign languages, Math, and Science. They may also select the link by age to see courses available.

In an effort to accommodate the large number of students registered for classes, we have expanded our course offerings. Please be aware that many of these classes will fill early, so please be prepared to indicate a second choice of classes when completing the online class selection. Students registered for a full day of six classes will be given priority. The following courses can only be selected for students taking a full day of classes: Girls' Club, Boys' Club, Sewing, PE, Culinary Arts, Drama, Geography, Exploring Lego, Lego Engineering, and STEM.

Due to the high demand for many of these classes, a student registering for less than six classes will unlikely be admitted. 

Please remember that students must be in class at all times. Study Hall is unavailable for students under 12, and parents must pick up students as soon as their last class is over.

Students may stay at lunch IF they have classes at 11:00 and 12:30. Students should bring their own lunchboxes (avoid peanuts).

Please remember that students must be in class at ALL times. Study Hall is not available for students under 15. Parents must pick up students as soon as their last class is over. Study Hall is available for students 15 and over.

We have limited class space and are using all available spaces to accommodate students. Parents will not be permitted to stay on campus between classes with siblings not enrolled in classes. We do not have a playroom or space for parents to do homework with siblings who are not in a class. The public library is located very close (less than 8 minutes away) and can accommodate families that would like to have a space to work during classes. We encourage parents willing to volunteer and assist us in providing services to our students to stay on campus. 

Please plan your schedule to include at least 12 hours on campus each semester for volunteering. We are dependent on parent volunteers to maintain the quality of our program and provide excellent service for our students. We have many areas to serve to fit the needs and interests of parents.

Class selection is a FINANCIAL COMMITMENT. Do NOT select classes unless you are committed to attending. You will be responsible for paying for any classes you choose. We are unable to allow students to "drop" classes after the online class selection is submitted. If your circumstances change, you will still be responsible for paying for any class you select. If you are put on a waitlist or do not get into a class, you will not have to pay for it. Payment is expected if you are admitted to the class.

Many homeschool families choose to teach their students using curriculum above or below the grade level of their public school peers.  To better help with placement of students in VHA classes we have divided classes by age. Because this is a group setting Vanguard priority will be to put students with same age peers. We recognize that many students are academically capable of doing work above grade level but we will not advance younger students into classes with teens. Occasionally a student's maturity level with make them more successful with a younger age group and we will consider these requests individually. In most cases students should register for the classes that match their age group. VHA will consider requests to change age levels on an individual basis.

Lunch is available for students from 12:00-12:30. We encourage students to attend lunch and meet other Vanguard students. Study Hall is available only to students age 15 and up.
