which they excel, while students who need more time to grasp a concept

said Dr. Perry Daniel, Head of School at Louisiana Virtual Charter
Academy. “Our program has always been fully committed to providing an
option for Louisiana families who are looking for an alternative and
enriching academic experience for their children.”

Earlier this summer LAVCA challenged enrolled families to prevent summer
‘brain drain’ by offering students free access to LearnBop,
a self-paced solution that simulates a one-on-one, personalized math
tutoring experience. The award-winning online program will continue to
be available free of charge throughout the fall and can be used
alongside the regular math curriculum to build math skills or prepare
for high-level exams.

At LAVCA, students have the opportunity to participate in year-round
field trips and school activities organized by teachers that blend
academics and socialization. In addition, students can also choose to
participate in dozens of extracurricular activities and clubs that cover
a wide variety of interests.
