Hamilton Virtual School 

Hamilton Full Time Virtual School

At Hamilton Virtual School, we are proud of the work that we do with each and every learner we have the opportunity to serve.  We continue to grow our educational options so learning is personalized for each student and each student thrives.  Hamilton Virtual School has a 100% graduation rate and offers a complete online education for grades K-12.

Hamilton Virtual School provides a personal experience with exceptional results by offering a complete online curriculum for full time virtual school students and traditional students in all of our buildings. HVS learners must have a committed learning coach at home to oversee their online education.  If taking an online class at one of our district's schools, supervision will be provided during the normal school day.  Certified teachers in all grade levels and subject areas are available for grading and assistance.  Each learner also has a mentor teacher to assist with classes and to ensure adequate progress.  Tutoring and lab time is available at the Hamilton Virtual lab Monday - Friday 10-4.  Students may be dropped off to work on online classes in the lab and are encouraged to come on campus if they need help or are falling behind at home.

We strive to personalize curriculum and offer choices in curriculum.  Schedule time to meet us and demo Kickstand and Calvert courses to determine which platform fits your learner best and learn about all Hamilton Virtual School has to offer.  Hamilton Virtual School will have openings for full time enrollment for the 20-21 school year at all grade levels.  Please watch for the schools of choice window to open in mid-May and apply for enrollment.

Part time 21f Enrollment - Homeschool

Non-essential courses, sometimes called “electives” are available to all students, whether they are a full time virtual student, a homeschooler, a traditional public Hamilton Community Schools (HCS) student, or a non-public student accessing our programming through a shared-time arrangement with their nonpublic school. Courses such as Music, PE, and Art are just some of the opportunities that all students enrolled at HCS may take online. 

Part time 21f enrollment for homeschoolers is limited.  Contact Jill Deters, jdeters@hamiltonschools.us, to be added to a mail list for information on how to apply if openings become available for the 20-21 school year.  Homeschool families living in the Hamilton school district will have the first option if there are any openings.
