Jesuit Virtual Learning Academy
The Jesuit Virtual Learning Academy makes it possible to connect people, places and experiences to enhance learning in ways never before possible - providing innovations in course and content delivery, faculty development, community building and technology resources.
It's precisely what you'd expect from an endeavor created in the spirit of St. Ignatius and his companions. The Jesuit Virtual Learning Academy was developed through collaboration with Jesuit educators to provide Jesuit secondary schools with the ability to:
- Provide additional curriculum to students of our traditional schools, as well as those in underserved areas.
- Offer teachers new opportunities for professional growth and to share resources.
- Enhance the technology skill sets of students and faculty alike.
- Provide enrichment opportunities for parents, alumni and community leaders who value Jesuit education.
Make the most of your resources
With the Jesuit Virtual Learning Academy, you have everything you need to successfully facilitate distance learning and collaboration.
Built on a computer-based platform, known as a Learning Management System (LMS), the Jesuit Virtual Learning Academy provides many of the familiar functions of a traditional school, including general announcements; directions and school calendar; course catalog; registration and other business and school functions; "classroom" organization with course objectives, content, study groups, discussions, guest lecturers and assignments; and a reporting and monitoring tool.
From promoting your online learning network, to training your teachers and staff, to ensuring its relevance to your students, parents and community, we work in partnership with you to ensure you're able to provide the best learning experience for students and teachers.
The Jesuit Virtual Learning Academy is a separately incorporated, not-for-profit educational organization that is recognized by the Jesuit Conference as a work of the Society of Jesus. It is governed by a Board of Trustees and supported by a Board of Advisors. Its Curriculum Review Board serves as the approving body for all credit-bearing courses to ensure courses are both academically rigorous and imbued with Ignatian spirituality.
It begins with a dialogue. Learn more about The Jesuit Virtual Learning Academy and what it can do for you.
