AZVA and ISAZ have integrated support teams of school leaders, teachers, academic coaches and counselors that offer unique learning opportunities through personalized education and strong community relationships. Students and families can access the virtual learning systems anytime, from anywhere there is an internet connection. And, with AZVA’s and ISAZ’s methods, students can pair a solid academic foundation with hands-on learning experiences. The schools also host in-person events and touchpoints.

“Our schools have proven to be excellent options for students and families,” said AZVA and ISAZ Executive Director Charles Woods, Jr. “We offer tailor-made courses designed to prepare our students for success while providing them the opportunity to learn at their own pace.”

Both Arizona schools specialize in serving different student needs:

  • AZVA, based in Phoenix, is a full-time, online K-12 public school option. It is one of the largest virtual schools in the nation, with more than 5,000 students. AZVA is the only state-approved, online virtual school with a CRE/CTE program that trains students in career pathways ranging from cybersecurity and veterinary medicine to drone technology and engineering. Some students who graduate from the school can obtain high-paying jobs with $50,000 salaries.
  • ISAZ, based in Glendale, is a full-time, online public school option for students in grades 7-12. The school is dedicated to inspiring and empowering students through a variety of courses in areas of Programming/Artificial Intelligence (AI), Medical Assisting and Mental Health Technician all with a tailored education experience on a trimester schedule, allowing students to take fewer courses at a time. Optional and required instructional sessions are scheduled each week and offer a more accommodating structure than in traditional public schools.
