Envision Academy is a daily, blended learning, online learning program located on the Gilroy High School campus. Students enrolled in Envision Academy will take 1-3 classes in the Envision Academy classroom, and will complete their remaining classes with Gilroy High School teachers on the main campus.
Envision Academy provides students a blended learning environment. Students will have the opportunity to participate in both teacher led, small group, and independent learning instruction. Teachers will provide daily classroom lessons and activities to help support and guide students through their online coursework. Students will complete their online coursework through Edmentum; an A-G college approved online learning platform.
Envision Academy teachers help students with their coursework and mastery of standards based content. The teachers also provide content based lessons, tutoring, community building, and social-emotional support. In addition, Envision Academy teachers work alongside Gilroy High School staff and guardians to help support student success in all of their classes.
Students are committed to the Envision Academy program for the school year; however, they are welcome to transfer back to Christopher High School or Gilroy High School at the end of the year; or they can select to remain in the hybrid program. There will be a few exceptions depending on the specific needs of the student.
